Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • While she was making this picture, Jamie Lee Curtis stayed in Marlene Dietrich's apartment (12E) at 993 Park Avenue in Manhattan. She'd been engaged to Dietrich's grandson, production designer J. Michael Riva.
  • In the opening montage of Philadelphia there is a shot of the Rocky statue erected in Rocky III that was released the previous year and was still sitting at the top of the "Rocky" steps in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The statue now resides at the base of the museum steps.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): Among the portraits on the walls in the Heritage Club is a painting of J.P. Morgan, a highly significant financier in the early 20th century. If these portraits are meant to be of founding members of the club, Morgan is out of place; he spent his youth in Connecticut, and most of his adult life in New York. He never lived in Philadelphia, making his membership in the Heritage highly unlikely.
  • A scene in the movie not included in the final cut but seen frequently when the movie is shown on television (presumably to fill a longer time slot with commercials) occurs after Clarence Beeks talks to the Dukes via telephone and Billy Ray eavesdrops on their scheme. In the original cut, Beeks goes from the phone booth to the Amtrak train platform, holding the briefcase with the crop report. In the added scene, we see Beeks procure the reports from a secured vault where he pays off a security guard and opens a safe-deposit box.
