The Truman Show

Other mistake: When Truman is standing at the open doorway at the very end, and is addressed directly by Cristof, during some of the shots, the open doorway behind him becomes a black backing board, visible from the way the light falls on it. (01:32:15)

Other mistake: After Truman opens the door to the outside world there is a close up shot of him listening to the creator. Behind Truman is a solid black wall, not the shadowy space we would expect and do find in later scenes.

Continuity mistake: When Marlon stocks the vending machine, the camera (inside the back of the machine) shows him stocking the 1st row with brown-wrapper candy bars. He starts stocking the 2nd row with yellow-wrapper bars; Truman interrupts him for a minute (during which Marlon doesn't touch the bars at all). When Marlon continues, the yellow bars have changed to something darker (it's not just a different camera view; even barcodes are different). After another brief interruption, Marlon continues again, and the yellow bars are back. (00:35:00)

Question: Why didn't they just bring Sylvia/Lauren Garland back on set, to stop him finding out about Truman's true nature? It was Sylvia that Truman wanted to go off and go to Fiji with.

Shadow5

Chosen answer: Because she would have revealed the truth to him. That's why she was removed from the set in the first place.
