Corrected entry: Just a spelling mistake. In the film, the dead kid the group find is called 'Ray Brower' and if you want proof, put the film on subtitles. In the DVD of the movie, in the small booklet, where the scene selections are listed for chapter 25 it says 'The rest of Ray Bower.'
Corrected entry: During the campfire, the boys all ask each other random questions. Vern says, "If I could only have one food to eat for the rest of my life, it would be cherry flavored Pez." In 1959, Cherry flavored Pez did not exist. The only flavors that existed were the originals: strawberry, grape, orange and lemon.
Corrected entry: When they find the body it is extremely windy (you can see it in the trees) then suddenly it is not windy anymore.
Corrected entry: When the boys are on the bridge running from the train, the locomotive is making large clouds of smoke. If the engine was really braking as indicated, it would hardly make any smoke at all.
Corrected entry: In the Lardass Hogan story scene, Lardass pukes up blueberries and so do the other contestants, obviously, because they are scarfing down blueberry pie. But when the whole audience starts puking, everyone is puking up blueberries. Why?
Corrected entry: When Gordie accidentally shoots the garbage cans and he and Chris run away, they are well out of sight before the waitress comes outside. In the next shot Gordie says, "That Tupper babe saw me." First, how does he know who she is, and second, why does he think she's seen him if they were well around the corner?
Corrected entry: The Topps baseball card in Denny's room was not available until after the film was set.
Corrected entry: When the boys sit down on the railroad to count their money, some of the boys drop their sleeping rolls and bags down, and in the next shot they put them down again differently.
Corrected entry: In the scene right before the boys come to the railroad bridge, the Chordettes "Lollipop" song is announced on the radio, and the song begins playing. The movie is set in 1959, that particular song is listed as being recorded in 1960.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Gordie "notices" the leech on Vern's neck, he was in no position to see it, as he was being held in some sort of neck hold by Vern, with Vern directly behind him. You can see Gordy turns his head to somehow make us believe he can see the leech, but it would have been physically impossible.
