Radio Flyer

Factual error: In the scene where Bobby and Mike go into the comic book store, you can clearly see a Transformers comic on the shelf. But the movie is set in the late 1960's/early 1970's....and Transformers did not come out until the 1980's.

Factual error: The walkie-talkies the kids use at the end of the film would not make the squealing noise they do. The walkie-talkies they have transmit on high enough frequencies that this would not happen. Mediumwave and Shortwave have this effect, not walkie-talkies.

Continuity mistake: As the boys are running through the sewer tunnel, both of them fall several times, and they are covered with dirt and sewage. When they come out and face the bullies, their clothes are clean.

Question: Why is the King's face hardly ever shown?

Answer: Deliberate production choice, and to show him from the younger child's point of view - also remember The King, when in his drunken state, is a child abuser, so the younger boy will see him as a large and terrifying presence - that is, so big he won't fit in the frame of the shot.
