Factual error: The airplane that Penny Lane is on has small vertical stabilizers on the wingtips, which were not designed into commercial jets until the early 90's.
Almost Famous (2000)
Ending / spoiler
Directed by: Cameron Crowe
Starring: Frances McDormand, Jason Lee, Kate Hudson, Anna Paquin, Billy Crudup, Patrick Fugit
Penny dumps Russell, and tricks him to go to William's house when he thought it was her address. Russell also calls Rolling Stone and confirms all of the previously denied facts in William's article, it gets published, and Stillwater go on their first headlining tour. They ditch the plane and go back to Doris the bus. Penny finally leaves for Morocco.
Sapphire: William? I forgot to tell you. Your mom called. She says you gotta call home immediately. And she says to tell you, "I know what's going on."
Trivia: When Penny Lane asks William to go with her to "wherever", she asks him twice. The first time William didn't like the way he said it, so he asked her to ask him again while the cameras were still rolling. Cameron Crowe like it so much that he kept the entire sequence in the film.
Question: What was the real rock band Cameron Crowe based the fictional group Stillwater on?
