Crazy Heart suburban...


http://forum.73-87chevytrucks.com/smforum/index.php?topic=17249.0

i like watching for mistakes in filming....

goofs:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1263670/goofs

Continuity: Bad is driving down the road in the '78 Suburban that has old faded paint. When it is rolled down the hill, it has suddenly been freshly painted exactly like it appears in its next scene, which occurred after repairs had supposedly been made. The sequence of filming was apparently to wait until the all other scenes had been made using the Suburban and then rolling it down the hill.


Continuity: When the suburban crashes it rolls over a fence. In the next shot the fence disappears.


Revealing mistakes: When Bad opens the Suburban's driver's door while talking to Jean, the door mirror is "fogged over" to prevent the crew and equipment from being visible in the mirror.

Revealing mistakes: After Bad crashes and rolls the Suburban, there is a shot through the driver's side window of him lying on the passenger side floor. The shift lever on the Suburban is in "PARK".


Factual errors: The Suburban is stated to be a 1978 model, but the body side moldings have a yellow/gold painted insert which was only available for one model year, "1977".



Continuity: In several shots, the Suburban's driver's side door mirror is turned inward toward the door when Bad get in, but is in the normal position when the Suburban is going down the road.

'Beer for my Horses' has a black 81-87 flatbed in a short chase scene, and later there's another squarebody they take hunting.

     In the 80's the series "the a team" there was a lot of 73 -87 trucks that you seen in the background.
#1: The easiest and most obvious solution to any problem is 99% of the time correct.
#2: There is no such thing as impossible, it just takes longer.
