Kate & Leopold

Factual error: In the begining at the bridge ceremony, the band plays Manhattan Beach by John Philip Sousa. However, Manhattan Beach was composed in 1893.

Factual error: It's not just the date of La Boheme they have wrong. Pirates of Penzance didn't premiere until 1880 and it was the apprentice who found love with the Major General's daughter and not, as stated, the Pirate King.

Factual error: The morning after Leopold and Stuart travel to the present, the two of them are talking about why Leopold followed Stuart to the bridge. Leopold mentions that he was afraid Stuart might be Jack the Ripper, whose first murder was in 1888, twelve years after Leopold's time.

Trivia: The movie was re-edited days before its release because critics at one of the press screenings noticed a glaring problem. Originally, Leopold was Stuart's great, great grandfather. Since Kate eventually went back in time to be with Leopold, she would be Stuart's great, great grandma as well. Talked about whacked out incest. Most instances of that relationship were removed (it is alleged that Leopold's line "I felt that we met before on a previous occasion" early on was left in by mistake,) though it is explained on the director's cut version on the DVD.

Leopold: As I see it, Patrice has not an inkling of your affections, and it's no wonder. You, Charles, are a merry-andrew.
Charlie: A what?
Leopold: Everything plays a farce to you. Women respond to sincerity. No-one wants to be romanced by a buffoon.
