Eddie the Eagle

Visible crew/equipment: While Eddie visits Peary to have a chat about being an Olympic ski jumper, Peary tells him he has more chance of being a ballerina and he rolls under the car to work on it. Then when Eddie mentions Sharp, just as Peary rolls out from under the car we can see the bulging outline of the mic's hidden bodypack transmitter and its wire on Peary's chest. (00:27:05)

Factual error: The film is set in 1987 and Eddie ends up in hospital. However the bed we see him on is a fairly modern one with hand controls to raise and lower the bed. Not available in 1987.
