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.

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.

Richie: I hate to tell you buddy, it ain't working.

More quotes from It

Trivia: At the library IT writes something on the type-writer, a verse which Bill tells the others his mother gave him as a kid to help with his stuttering. The verse goes "He thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts." In the book, young Bill used this verse to defeat IT in the Chüd ritual.

Question: Tim Curry is credited not only as Pennywise but as Robert "Bob" Gray. Who was he and when did he appear?

Answer: Pennywise often introduced himself as 'Robert "Bob" Gray aka Pennywise the Dancing Clown'. I don't know if he does it in the movie or not.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: He was the gas station attendant that Audra came up and asked how far till she gets to Derry.

The gas station attendant actor is Boyd Norman, who looks nothing like Tim Curry.
