Corrected entry: In the scene where all the patients are tossing Mr. Harding's cigarette around, it lands in Mr. Taber's curled up pant leg and burns him. In the shot right before Mr. Taber screams, you can plainly see that the cigarette is smoking from the wrong end. The tobacco end is exposed and isn't even lit, but the smoke is rising up from the filtered end. (01:17:40)
Continuity mistake: In the scene where McMurphy gets upset while playing blackjack, he gets up and walks towards the nurses' quarters to turn down the volume on the record player. Martini and Bibbit are still sitting at the card table while McMurphy is walking towards the nurses' quarters but when he gets inside, Martini is already leaning against the counter of the nurses' quarters with Bibbit close behind him. (00:27:00)
McMurphy: What do you think you are, for Chrissake, crazy or somethin'? Well you're not! You're not! You're no crazier than the average asshole out walkin' around on the streets, and that's it.
Trivia: Ken Kesey, the author of the novel upon which the film was based, was originally hired to work on the screenplay but was fired soon thereafter.
Question: I'm not from the USA so excuse the lack of knowledge, would pleading insanity really get you off a rape charge?
