Factual error: A copy of Miles Davis' album "Tutu" is sitting on a counter. Odd since the recording wasn't made until 1986.
Visible crew/equipment: When Dickie and Ripley are scootering down a little Italian hillside, you can see the shadow of the whole film crew against the hill.
Continuity mistake: When Marge gets out of the water and climbs the stairs on the sailboat her swimsuit is blue. But when she is on board and we get a close up it is red.
Freddie Miles: I want this job of yours, Tommy. I was just saying, you live in Italy, sleep in Dickie's house, eat Dickie's food, wear his clothes, and his father picks up the tab. If you get bored, let me know, I'll do it.
Tom Ripley: You're the brother I never had. I'm the brother you never had. I would do anything for you, Dickie.
Question: At the end of the movie, when Tom finds out that Meredith is on the boat, he wants to kill either her or Peter because they both believe different stories about him and might run into each other. Is there any reason why he chose to kill Peter?
Question: I know that Tom had to kill Peter because of Meredith's family being there and all, but what exactly does this end mean? Is Ripley caught as a liar? Does he stay as Dickie for the rest of his life? What exactly does this end suggest?
