Almost every film, even the classics, contains blunders and gaffes -- and this compendium of thousands of amusing mistakes will turn every reader into an informed goof sleuth and provide hours of entertainment. Each entry lists title, credits, plot, bloopers, nonbloopers (mistakenly reported errors), questions (oddities), and fun facts. Bloopers range from the hilariously obvious to the picayune; each described and keyed to the timer on a video player for easy locating. Here's a sample: -- From Casablanca (1942): An indignant Lazlo (Paul Henreid) asks the band to play "La Marsellaise" and the music erupts from the trumpets before they actually reach the players' mouths. (01:12)-- From Pretty Woman (1990): Vivian (Julia Roberts) is having breakfast; she grabs a croissant and nibbles it. A few shots later, she holds a pancake. (00:30)-- From Titanic (1997): As Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) goes to the rich folks' dinner, a waiter opens a beautiful door -- that reflects the image of a steadycam operator. (00:56)-- From The Courage of Lassie (1946), with Elizabeth Taylor as Kathie Merrick. Just one problem -- in the movie, the dog is called Bill.
