Almost Famous

Continuity mistake: In the radio station scene, when Lester Bangs is pulling albums from the shelves and tossing them on the floor, he pulls Yes' Fragile and tosses it. In the very next shot, it's back on the shelf. Two shots later, it's back on the floor - or some other time-warped dimension, but not on the shelf.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end while the band are talking about what William wrote about them and Russell is lying on the bench, the sun changes between shots.

Trivia: This is the first Cameron Crowe movie not to feature a cameo by Eric Stoltz. Stoltz was supposed to appear on a theater marquee that said "The Crazy World of Eric Stoltz" but that didn't work out due to budgeting. Although, while the theatrical version doesn't feature Stoltz, Crowe stated in the "Untitled" DVD commentary that the Untitled version does include a reference of some sort to Stoltz, thus keeping the streak alive. Crowe encourages fans to try and find the reference in the film.
