Evita

Factual error: During the riots and the start of the film a model of armoured car and grenade launcher are seen, which were not manufactured until the 1970's.

David Mercier

Continuity mistake: Parts of the movie were filmed in Budapest/Hungary, and in the funeral scene Hungarian shopnames are to see behind the big pictures of Evita on the housewalls.

Question: What does the Latin chant in "Oh What a Circus" translate to? (The "salve regina" bit?)

Answer: As I recall they sing the English right after the Latin, but, in any case, it's a variation of a well known Gregorian Chant. The English from the movie is: Hail, oh queen, mother of mercy / Our life, sweetness, and hope / Hail, hail, oh queen / To you we cry, exiled sons of Eve / To you we sigh, mourning and weeping / Oh clement, oh loving one.
