Primary Colors

Primary Colors (1998)

Continuity mistake: There is a scene where Jack Stanton is campaigning in Manchester, New Hampshire. He is shown talking with a counter clerk in a "Krispy Kremes" donut shop. There is no Krispy Kreme shop in Manchester, or even in New Hampshire. This is a southern chain, even though its donuts are now distributed throughout the U.S.

Other mistake: In the scene at the kitchen table where the New York analyst is suggesting ways for Jack Stanton to deny the allegations he has impregnated a teenage black woman, to the staff he says, "We can go on Montel or Geraldo or some show like that." Only his mouth doesn't say "Montel." He is saying "Oprah," but has been dubbed in post-production to say Montel.

Trivia: When the original novel was published, the author was identified as "Anonymous." As a result of curious professors and investigative journalists trying to identify the author, the person was identified as Joe Klein, an American magazine columnist who was working for the newsmagazine Newsweek. Investigators had shown that the writing style found in "Primary Colors" is identical to the writing style found in Klein's Newsweek articles.

Trivia: The film is a disguised account of the 1992 Clinton presidential campaign. The names of the principle characters had been changed (e.g. Jack Stanton represents Bill Clinton) from the real people they represent.
