Hollywoodland (2006)

2 corrected entries

Corrected entry: A TV executive says that, if "The Adventures of Superman" is picked up for a second season, it will start filming in color. That show wasn't shot in color until season three.

Correction: There's two times filming in color is mentioned, neither mention the fact they will start filming in color. Art tells George that Kellogg's ordered more episodes and only says that they want to film in color (but doesn't say when and doesn't say they will start to film in color). Prior to that, the discussion of filming is color is brought up when George is putting on a grey Superman suit, but the only thing said about it is if it's picked up then maybe they'll film in color.


Corrected entry: In the scene where George Reeves is drinking from a Coca-Cola bottle, the company logo is painted in white on the bottle. In the 1950's, the logo was actually molded into Coca-Cola bottles and clear.

Correction: The white logo bottle was widely available in the 1950's, as confirmed by the Coca Cola webiste and several other sites about the history of Coca Cola.

Louis Simo gives his son an Etch-A-Sketch while taking him to school, and later when Louis stops by to see his son at his ex-wife's house, his son is playing with the Etch-A-Sketch in his bedroom. Both incidents take place in the summer of 1959. George Reeves died June 16, 1959, hence the investigation. The first Etch-A-Sketch toys were produced on July 12, 1960 and Ohio Art launched the toy in the United States in time for the 1960 holiday season.



Although Adrian Brody was officially the star of "Hollywoodland," his character (private detective Louis Simo) was a completely fictional role in the movie. Virtually all of the other characters in the film are based on real people, but there never was a Louis Simo, and he's not based on any actual person (s). George Reeves' mother did hire an attorney and a detective agency in real life; however, "Hollywoodland" director Allen Coulter said that the character of Louis Simo wasn't even partially based on anyone in real life.
