American Graffiti

Visible crew/equipment: As Milner and Carol get out of his hot-rod to vandalize the girls' stopped car, a bearded man with a mustache can be seen in the car window's reflection as it's being rolled up. The man is wearing a white long-sleeved shirt with what appears to be a maroon sweater-vest. I believe the man to be George Lucas, as he appears to be directing in an upward motion with his left arm. (00:59:05)

Factual error: In one scene a parked car is sitting along the street - it is a '68 Chevy, it has sidelights. Yet the film is set in 1962.

Trivia: When Terry is being introduced, he drives up on his scooter, and has quite a bit of trouble parking it. This is because Charles Martin Smith actually didn't know how to drive a stick shift. The small accident he has is real, you can see him crash, look up towards the camera (at Lucas), and continue the scene. Lucas motioned for him to continue, because the crash looked so interesting.
