Re: Fate's biplane

Welcome. :) The Wikipedia page for the June Bug states that there was a movie crew there filming, but I don't know if the movie survived, I can't find it. Here's a 1/4 scale model of it being flown in 2008. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVgCfzYEXwA Movie info here: http://www.citwf.com/film118310....

Maggies costumes

By my count, Maggie wears 20 costumes during the movie. I've shown them all at http://leslie-special.info/costumes1.htm However, #8 and #10 are the same, the only time she ever changes back to an identical costume. This may be simply due to the order in which the scenes were shot. 13, 14, 15 and 16 ...

Re: Location of Leslie Special & Prof Fate's Hannibal Twin-8

... I just noticed how strange the black-tires look on the Leslie-Special when I looked at that picture again from my previous post. I never even noticed it before today. Fred Stahl really does drive that car around a few times a year, so obviously the original white tyres have worn out, or have be...

Fate's biplane

As noted in the IMDB "goofs" section: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059243/goofs?item=gf1648638 When Professor Fate is lifted by an airplane flown by Max, the plane resembles a Curtiss Headless Pusher. This plane was not designed and built until 1912, four years after the year in which this...
