Mask (1985)

Other mistake: When Rocky is in the funhouse looking at himself, he appears to look relatively "normal". But it's very obvious that it's got nothing to do with the mirror, and more to do with the removal of a lot of makeup. For example, Rocky usually has almost no nose, but in the mirror he has Eric Stoltz's very well developed nose.

Deliberate mistake: The mirror that made Rocky's face look normal should've made his mom's face look different, but her face stayed the same.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie a big man is placing flowers at Rocky's grave. From the back of the tombstone he is laying the flowers on their sides. In the next shot, from the front of the stone, they are standing up, leaning against the stone.

Trivia: Director Peter Bogdanovich's first choice for the part of Rocky Dennis was Anthony Michael Hall. Hall turned down the part because he didn't like the idea of hiding his face during the whole film with make-up. Eric Stoltz was then cast instead.

Trivia: During the baseball game at the camp for the blind, notice the extra actor standing to the right of second base. She reaches back and pulls her underwear out of the crack of her bottom, apparently oblivious to the camera behind her.

Trivia: Rocky wasn't buried in a cemetery as shown in the end. His body was donated to science.

Question: I don't know if this is a urban myth or what, but didn't the real Rocky Dennis like Bruce Springsteen, but "The Boss" or his manager/lawyer, etc refused to allow the music to be used in the movie and that is why Bob Seger's tunes were used instead?

Chosen answer: According to the IMDb, so take with a degree of scepticism, Rocky's favourite music was indeed Springsteen and the Boss himself was happy for it to be used, but, at the time of the original release, an agreement regarding royalty rates could not be reached with the rights owner. A director's cut was released a while later with seven minute of additional footage and the Springsteen songs used instead, after Springsteen pushed for an agreement to be made.

Question: When Rocky kisses Dianne, why is it a New Years dance if they are at summer camp?

Chosen answer: It appears to be a party at camp. Lots of camps have special themed parties especially before the camp is over.
