Almost Famous

Continuity mistake: In the radio station scene, when Lester Bangs is pulling albums from the shelves and tossing them on the floor, he pulls Yes' Fragile and tosses it. In the very next shot, it's back on the shelf. Two shots later, it's back on the floor - or some other time-warped dimension, but not on the shelf.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end while the band are talking about what William wrote about them and Russell is lying on the bench, the sun changes between shots.

Factual error: This is a wardrobe error... in the next morning scene after William has been deflowered, he is still in his Fruit of the Looms, which have the name printed on the elastic waistband. Fruit of the Loom did not print their name on waistbands like this until the 90s, in the 70s they just had single blue and yellow stripes. (01:08:27)

Alice Wisdom: I like The Doors.
Lester Bangs: Give me The Guess Who. They got the courage to be drunken buffoons, which makes them poetic.
