Revealing mistake: When Guido tries to escape camouflaged as a woman and is stopped by the guards the second from right prisoner cannot help laughing.



Revealing mistake: When Guido and Ferrucio spot the publisher sitting in a café she is studying a manuscript while holding it sideways.



Revealing mistake: When Giosuè steps out of the metal box he walks over to a marked spot where he is supposed to wait for the tank to turn around the corner. This wouldn't have been as revealing if he hadn't been firmly looking at his mark for the last few meters.



Revealing mistake: When Guido acts as the school inspector he is wearing jacket and trousers and a sash rather tightly through his crotch. After the camera cuts to the approaching real school inspector for a few seconds Guido has gotten rid of trousers and jacket, but the sash is still in place, a feat worthy of the great Houdini.

Roberto Benigni became the first Italian actor in more than 35 years to win an Oscar for an acting role. The last winner was Sophia Loren. His unexpecting Oscar win for "Best Actor" marked only the second time that an actor had directed himself in an Academy Award winning performance. The other was Laurence Olivier for Hamlet (1948). Benigni also became the first actor to win a best actor oscar for an non-English speaking role.
