Corrected entry: Daniel refers to the landing speed of the B25 bomber as 135 miles per hour. First, no pilot, especially one of WW2 vintage, ever referred to an aircraft speed in miles per hour. He would refer to the speed in knots. (In this case, about 115 knots) Second, the B25 had a landing speed of 90 knots - a little over 100 miles per hour.

Correction: You forget that hes also explaining the landing process to a 10 year old. Nat may or may not know what a knot is. Hes simply passing along the the information in terms that Nat would understand. And Daniel wouldnt know what the final correct landing speeds are for a B-25. He was testing the aircraft when he went into the deep freeze. He wouldnt have the final operational data on the aircraft.


Corrected entry: The freezer with Daniel in it was misplaced in a warehouse for 50 years and disconnected from whatever utilities. Therefore, there was no chance that it would still be cold after such a long time. (00:27:00)


Correction: Since it was never explained what chemicals, processes, etc... are needed to freeze him, it is likely the container remaining closed is enough to keep his body frozen. The "utilities" attached to it in the beginning could have been nothing more than devices for collecting data or getting the freezing process started.


Corrected entry: It is established that Nat is 10 years old. In the scene where Claire is patching up Daniel, Nat carries in a Boy Scout book. Boy Scouts are all 12 and older. Nat should be a Cub Scout. (00:46:30)

Correction: You can check these books out at the library. There is no reason why he cannot have this book, especially since we see him at the library anyways.


Corrected entry: When the freezer with Daniel in it opens you hear the sound of a breathing machine, which would be totally useless under the circumstances. (00:27:00)


Correction: Actually, all you hear is differences in the sound that the air is making as it hisses. It does resemble a breathing machine, but since one is never shown on film, no mistake is made here.


Continuity mistake: Daniel grabs Nat's jacket when the freezer gets opened, and it tears visibly and audibly. When Claire sees Nat wearing it after he has found it (that is after Daniel has given it back to him) there is no sign of any damage. (00:28:15 - 00:47:20)

More quotes from Forever Young

Question: Would the labels on the Budweiser bottles be the same in the older era during the beginning of the movie, as it is in the latter part of the movie (1994)?

Answer: The color and design of the label hasn't changed in decades, although the script on it has changed some over time. They all look almost identical from a distance.
