It

Revealing mistake: In the library scene when Richie sees Pennywise the clown, all the balloons filled with blood are popping on people who aren't supposed to be able to see them, but one lands on a lady and you can see her jump as the balloon pops.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene were the adults go back into the sewer, and they have the feeling: "Something is coming", you can see the shadow of the cameraman, twice. One time, coming closer from a pipe, and another time, moving away. Look on the right wall/right on the floor.

Continuity mistake: When they are in the library after they found out Stan committed suicide, it shows Beverly stand up but when it cuts back to her she is sitting down and stands up.

Trivia: Tim Curry admitted that while he enjoyed working on the film, he was ultimately disappointed by the finished product, mainly due to the ending. He felt the final creature (a massive spider) was poorly executed and a massive let-down, and lacked any sense of fear or suspense.

Trivia: When the adults walk into the library, you'll see some of Bill's books on display (Bill is described as the Stephen King character), and all of Bill's books (Whether it's the name, topic, or cover picture) are based in some way on Stephen King's books. For instance - The Glowing/The Shining.

Trivia: At the library IT writes something on the type-writer, a verse which Bill tells the others his mother gave him as a kid to help with his stuttering. The verse goes "He thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts." In the book, young Bill used this verse to defeat IT in the Chüd ritual.

More quotes from It


Question: Tim Curry is said to appear as two different characters, Pennywise and Richie's boss, but I couldn't see him as the second. Where does he appear?

Chosen answer: I fear you may have been misinformed. He only appears as Pennywise in the film.

Manky

Question: Pennywise, the Singing and Dancing clown, is dressed in bright colors in the movie. The clown in the book wore silver. Does anyone know why this change was made?

Chosen answer: Silver costumes would have reflected studio lights and looked odd.

Grumpy Scot

Question: Tim Curry is credited not only as Pennywise but as Robert "Bob" Gray. Who was he and when did he appear?

Chosen answer: Pennywise often introduced himself as 'Robert "Bob" Gray aka Pennywise the Dancing Clown'. I don't know if he does it in the movie or not.
