Continuity mistake: In the scene where Effie sings "Curtis, this time Effie's gonna win", Curtis turns his head a little to his left when Effie sings "win" at his face. But at the next shot, camera behind Curtis, Curtis' head is slightly turned to his right. (01:52:35)
Curtis Taylor Jr.: Who was the first artist to sing "Hound Dog"?
C.C. White: Elvis Presley.
Curtis Taylor Jr.: Big Mama Thorton. She had the number-one single on the R&B charts, but the white stations wouldn't play it, because to them it was just another race record.
