The Iron Giant

Trivia: The Iron Giant has only 53 words of dialogue in the entire film.

Trivia: The film was originally developed as a musical by Pete Townshend, the guitarist of The Who. While it evolved into the science fiction story it became, Townshend still receives an "executive producer" credit.

Continuity mistake: When the Iron Giant follows Hogarth home they cross a railwayline and the Giant starts to eat the steel rail. During this scene you can see the distance of the railway sleepers changing from a fair distance apart to close together over the course of the shots. In the same scene you can also see that, although there is a crossing with lights, no vehicle could possibly pass as the rail has no crossover facility at that level. (00:24:30)
