Raising Arizona

Continuity mistake: When Hi, Gale and Evelle are sitting in the trailer talking about robbing the bank, watch the newspaper on Hi's lap. It goes from being folded to being fully opened in his hands between shots.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the dye pack explodes and Gale wipes off a spot to see H.I. and Ed coming right at them, you can see that H.I. is the one driving when the car swerves. Ed was driving in the previous scene.

Continuity mistake: In the classic fight scene between the two convicts who escaped jail and Nick Cage, the first shot of the destroyed trailer had Cheetos Puffs all over the floor. In the next scene there are Cheetos Crunchy all over the floor.

Trivia: In several scenes where H.I. is in the factory where he works his work suit has a "Hudsucker Industries" patch on it. The Cohen brothers who directed and produced the movie also put out a movie a few years back called "The Hudsucker Proxy."

Trivia: When the biker is riding into town in HI's dream and throws a grenade at a rabbit, it resembles the scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail where they throw the Holy Hand Grenade at the killer rabbit.

Trivia: When H.I. is robbing the convenience store while Ed and the baby wait in the car, listen to the music coming over the store's PA. It's a cheesy muzak version of the banjo music used throughout the film.
