Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When the Philadelphia cops are talking on the phone to the cops in Lancaster, first the Lancaster cop pronounces Lancaster (lank aster) like we natives do, but in the next breath, he pronounces it LANcaster like everyone outside a 25 mile radius does. Is he local or isn't he?
  • The story for Witness was originally a plot outline for the TV series Gunsmoke. The writers William Kelley (III) and Earl W. Wallace had both been writers on Gunsmoke and their original story had Marshall Dillon traveling to an Amish farm looking for a witness to a murder.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): "We've got a barn to build, and only a day to do it"... and yet they start the barn raising around noon (judging by the shadows) instead of the crack of dawn.
  • An actual barn was built as a result of the shooting of the barn-raising scene, but it was torn-down shortly afterwards.
