A Fish Called Wanda

Audio problem: When Wanda asks Ken if he's heard from George Ken stutters "No, he had to go to the b-b-b", as it cuts we can see his mouth is closed. It's impossible to say "b" with your mouth closed. (00:02:50)

Mortug

Audio problem: When Otto is being run over by the steam roller at the airport, he starts screaming as he is being run over and when the camera angle changes you can still hear him screaming but the stuntman's lips aren't moving as the steam roller goes over him and he's sinking into the wet cement. (01:43:00)

MCKD

Audio problem: As Otto throws the knife on to the seal poster you can hear the knife blade vibrating, however the knife isn't moving. (00:03:45)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: After Ken reverses the steamroller after running Otto over with it, you can see a red patch signifying his splattered body in front of the roller. However, a few scenes later, Otto is seen alive. (Otto was originally meant to die, until test audience feedback influenced a change of mind on the part of the filmmakers.)

Question: Is George's Oscar Wilde quotation, "We won't have to look for work, and it won't have to look for us," genuine? (Never trust a criminal, I know).

Louisa Radice

Answer: I did an Internet search for this quote, including checking best-quotations.com, and the only reference of it I can find is tied to the movie. I do not think this is an Oscar Wilde quote. If I find something, I'll update this, as it's possibly a line from one of his plays or novels that just doesn't happen to be online. Someone else might know.
