Dark Star

Dark Star (1974)

Factual error: In the scene right after pinback shoots the beach-ball alien, we see the Dark Star space craft cruising past a planet with a sun in the background. You can see a reflection on the planet which is coming from the space craft. I'm sorry, but usually ships in space are not large enough to reflect off a planet, especially to the degree this one does.

Revealing mistake: When Pinback is hanging from the lift, just before he decides to undo the bolts, you can see a piece of wood supporting his back.

Continuity mistake: As Pinback puts the fruit down in front of the alien, its feet and spots change position.

Trivia: When Doolittle is floating through space after the explosion, a piece of debris which floats by him is marked "toilet tank thx 138" - a reference to George Lucas' first film

Question: Not many people have even seen this classic, but i'll give it a go. On the DVD, when the crew are in the food store/bedroom, you can see that there are several pin-ups of girls on the wall behind them which have been blurred out. I can't see why the censors would be so fastitious about something which is hard to notice, let alone offend anyone - does anyone have any idea why they might do such a thing?

Chosen answer: It was done to get the film a 'G' / 'U' rating.
