Catch-22 (1970)

View Movie Goofs
  • Originally, the director Mike Nichols had hoped to have a whole bomb-group, 36 WW2 aircrafts, flown to Europe for the filming. It turned out to be too expensive, and it would anyhow have been very difficult to find so many WW2 bombers that could be made airworthy. - Olav Westerman
  • The airbase, complete with a concrete runway and several buildings, was built specifically for the movie in Mexico. - Olav Westerman
  • Most of the 17 B-25 bombers were former firefighting tankers assembled from all over USA and Canada. The turrets and guns were fake items bolted to the airframes. Even the camera-plane with its Cinerama-nose was painted in war-paint and took part in the scene where the whole squadron is taking off. - Olav Westerman
  • The aerial director, Johnny Jordan died during the filming. He always refused to wear a safety-harness, and fell out of the camera-plane at 2,000 feet while filming a formation of B-25s over the Gulf of Mexico. He had previously lost one of his legs, filming You Only Live Twice, when he sat with his camera in the open door of a helicopter and another helicopter came too close and cut his leg with its rotor-blade. - Olav Westerman
  • When the shooting of the movie was finished, the company had a hard time getting all the B-25s sold. Some went to museums and some to collectors who kept them airworthy, while some were just left rotting away, waiting for someone interested. One of the aircraft had so corroded wing panels, that the new owner had a steel-bar welded between the upper sides of the wings, over the fuselage, so the plane could make its last flight to its new home without breaking its wings. - Olav Westerman
  • The B25 bomber that lies burning after a "crash" was perfectly airworthy before that scene. It was suspended above a gasoline-filled pit in the ground. The gasoline was ignited and the cameras rolled. It was not planned that the plane should be severely damaged, but after a number of retakes it had turned to a wreck, and was buried on the spot. (Source: Aircraft magazines) - Olav Westerman

Chorus Line, A (1985)

View Movie Goofs
  • The big-wigs in charge knew that, in order to be eligible for an academy award, they had to write an original song for the movie (Cassie's solo "Let Me Dance For You"). Cassie's Broadway song is "Music and The Mirror", a much better song, although they are very similar. Also, Cassie sings "What I Did For Love" in the movie to emphasize her relationship with Zach (Michael Douglas), but in the Broadway show Diana sings it to emphasize the dancers' love of dancing. Just more Hollywood bullshit, which is part of the reason this movie sucked. (Source: The Line- Online) - JBone
  • Michael Douglas' dad, Kirk, bought the movie rights, but by the time he got to film it, he was too old for the part of Zach. (Source: The Line- Online) - JBone

View Movie Goofs

    • Explanation: It's not one of Disney's hidden sexual jokes, no sir. You see, back in the days the word "gay" meant happy and full of fun. It stands for cheerfulness and lighthearted excitement and merry. It's an old-fashioned word.


Citizen Kane (1941)

  • Writer, director, and actor Orson Welles was in his early twenties when he made what is considered his greatest film. - casamann
    • Comment: Orson Welles was actually 21 when here starred in & directed Citizen Kane. The same age as John Singleton when he directed Boys N the Hood. (Source: Most movie trivia books note this fact) - Shane
  • Citizen Kane is actually about William Randolph Hearst. Though the movie wasn't allowed to used his name. Hence "Citizen Kane"! - 4,000 years and counting

Clerks (1994)

  • Kevin Smith was supposed to play the part of Randal, but as a director he had to spend more time infront of the camera, so he decided to take pick a character with less dialogue; Silent Bob. - Obese
    • Correction: Yes Kevin Smith wrote the part of Randell for himself (hence all the funny one liners) but he gave up the part not to spend more time directing but because he realized that he can't act so he choose a character that doesn't speak..... learn your shit obese. (Source: The Kevin Smith documentary) - marcera
  • Kevin Smith has made 4 movies, but three of them form kind of a trilogy: Clerks, Mallrats and Chasing Amy. They all have same characters: Jay and Silent Bob. They have references between movies; In Chasing Amy, Allissa talks about a girl that died in a pool and a girl that fucked a dead guy, both appear (on and off camera) in Mallrats/Clerks. - Obese
    • Comment: Obese, you are a retard. No fuck the movies are linked. If you want real trivia how about the fact that Randal Graves, from Clerks, and Brodie Bruce, from Mallrats, are related by their mutual cousin Walter (not Walt "fanboy" Flanagan, but the Walter who died sucking his own dick and the Walter that got a few cats stuck up his ass... Learn your shit...) - J


Cliffhanger (1991)

  • In the opening scenes Sylvester Stallone is seen climbing up a steep mountainside. The camera shows a guy from behind, actually climbing, and when the camera zooms in, a helicopter passes between the guy and the camera. When the chopper has passed, the guy watches up, and we se his face: Stallone. In slow-motion you can see that the chopper is optically added to hide the cut when the scene shifts from a stand in on a real mountainside, to Stallone on the studio mountain, which was a copy of the real mountain. - Olav Westerman
  • The helicopter that tumbles down and explodes was a big model, several feet long, and two were expended to get the scene right. - Olav Westerman

  • The film made by Spielberg was actually written by the man himself! - casamann
    • Correction: Actually, I believe that the script was not originally written by Spielberg, but as revised so much by him that the original writer didn't take credit, leaving Spielberg to take credit for himself. So, that is partially correct. (Source: Myself) - Nikki
      • Comment: It was actually Paul Schrader (Taxi, Raging Bull) that first wrote Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It was completely rewritten by Spielberg because, to be frank, it wasn't very good. Schrader's explanation for why his version wasn't used: "I said, 'I refuse to send off to another world, as the first example of earth's intelligence, a man who wants to go and set up a McDonald's franchise,' and Steven [Spielberg] said, 'That's exactly the guy I want to send.'" Spielberg changed the script around so much that it had very little resemblance to Schrader's original script, and therefore Schrader refused to take credit for the movie. (Source: FilmForce: Featured Filmmaker: Paul Schrader) - Sonlex
  • When the Mother-Ship passes over the Devil's Tower near the end of the film, R2-D2 can be seen hanging upside down from the ship. - katsie
  • Spielberg had John Williams compose the score for the movie first and then made his screenplay match the score -- a cinematic miracle and a first! - tenderkeys
  • In the end sequence when the mother ship is playing a long series of sounds as communication, at the very end of this series of sounds the theme from "Jaws" plays briefly. (Source: Movie) - The Equalizer
  • In order to elicit the correct responses of joy and excitement from the child actor in the movie, the director had people dancing around behind the camera in clown and ape outfits. (Source: DVD) - The Equalizer

Color Purple, The (1985)

  • There is a missing scene from the original movie. The scene is when Mister brings home Shug Avery and Ceely sees her for the first time. Shug says "you sholl is ugly". In the next scene, She shrugs her face and says, "you still ugly". That part was taken out for some reason. Its referenced again when Ceely is giving Shug a bath and Ceely tells Shug what she said that night. "You ugly, you sholl is ugly". - BigRob

  • Chris Wylde and Johnny Knoxville make a cameo appearance. - stevo
  • When Jersey goes into the bar and orders "Pepsi and some crackers" (or whatever) the band 'The Calling' is performing in the background. - Paige
    • Correction: The band in fact is not The Calling, it is Unwritten Law. All band members are clearly visible including the font man Scott Russo. (Source: myself) - punk_rock_ethics
      • Correction: Check your source - The Calling is credited in the movie and they are also singing their first single "Wherever You Will Go" in that scene. (Source: - whiteboy
      • Correction: If you look on, they list The Calling (Alex Band, etc.) as the 'Mermaid Band' members and credit them for original music. Scott Russo/Unwritten Law is in a different scene, credited as "Elbow Room Band" members. You must have gotten your scenes mixed up. (Source: The movie/ - stellar

Crow, The (1994)

  • Eric Mabius (The actor who played the crow in The Crow Salvation)Auditioned for the role of Funboy. (Source: The Crow Salvation DVD) - Chickmagnet
  • Brandon Lee died during a mishap on the set. A scene required a gun to be loaded, cocked, and then pointed at the camera. Because of the close-range of the shot, the bullets loaded had real brass caps, but no powder. After the cut, the propsmaster (not the armsmaster - he had left the set for the day) dry-fired the gun to get the cock off, knocking an empty cartridge into the barrel of the gun. The next scene to be filmed involving that gun was the rape of Shelly. The gun was loaded with blanks (which usually contain double or triple the powder of a normal bullet to make a loud noise). Lee entered the set carrying a bag of groceries containing an explosive blood pack. The script called for Funboy (Michael Massee) to shoot Eric Draven (Lee) as he entered the room, triggering the blood pack. The cartridge that was stuck in the barrel was blasted at Lee through the bag he was carrying, killing him. The footage of his death was destroyed without being developed. Lee is the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, who died in mysterious circumstances before completing Game of Death (1978). (Source:
