Factual error: In 1960 young Ben, Beverly, and Bill are all taking leave of each other. Ben starts to walk away as Bill rides his bike away; Beverly muses "My heart burns there too" while looking longingly after Bill. A white 1980s-era box truck is parked down the street in the direction that Ben is heading.

Video

Factual error: The kids are leaving a movie theater that's playing I Was a Teenage Werewolf. This film was released in June of 1957. So one, they are in 1960 and this film would not still be playing. And two, they were shown still attending school, but they would not be attending school in June during summer break.

New today Suggested correction: Before the rise of home video, movies had much longer theatrical lives. It was not uncommon for a film like this to be shown as a Saturday matinee years after its initial release. I personally remember a local theater showing movies from the 60s well into the 70s.

Revealing mistake: In the library scene when Richie sees Pennywise the clown, all the balloons filled with blood are popping on people who aren't supposed to be able to see them, but one lands on a lady and you can see her jump as the balloon pops.

Trivia: Tim Curry admitted that while he enjoyed working on the film, he was ultimately disappointed by the finished product, mainly due to the ending. He felt the final creature (a massive spider) was poorly executed and a massive let-down, and lacked any sense of fear or suspense.
