Stand By Me

Visible crew/equipment: Part of a fluffy boom mike is visible at the top of the screen when they are arguing about crossing the bridge. [Edited in DVD]

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene just after the train dodge attempt by Teddy, you can see something white hanging out of Vern's pants as he walks onto the tracks. It is probably some part of equipment for his mike. (00:17:50)

Visible crew/equipment: In a bird's eye view when the boys cross the bridge, there is a camera visible at the end of the bridge.

Other mistake: Teddy's hair changes in every shot after being dunked in the swamp. The strap to his bag disappears and reappears as well.

More quotes from Stand By Me

Trivia: During the production of Stand By Me, director Rob Reiner did not want the film to be called The Body (the same name of the short story by Stephen King). He believed that if he did, people would confuse it with a documentary on body building, a porno film or another Stephen King horror novel. It was changed to Stand By Me because while thinking of a title, it was considered to be the least unpopular name.

Chosen answer: Its a game called three-penny-scat. I'm not 100% on the rules, but I think you get three cards, take the value of them (Royalty =10) and whoever gets closest to thirty wins. According to the book, it's one of the most boring games invented but "it was too hot to think about anything more complicated".

Answer: The goal is to get two point cards and an ace, all of the same suit to make 31.That's when you can call "Scat" and win the hand. The player with the lowest value loses the hand.
