Follow Me, Boys! (1966) Poster

Goofs

Continuity 

The fifteen Boy Scouts of Troop 1 leave Hickory with Lem on a march at 0:17:53 on the DVD. At 0:24:30 Lem begins singing the marching theme "Follow Me" with his fifteen Scouts joining in on the chorus. At 0:24:27 there is a fading transition to the troop crossing a creek spanned by two planks with both the Scouts and Lem starting a second verse and with major changes in clothing and their flag. From 0:24:50 to 0:24:52 the camera cuts to a shot of the boys with their original cloths and flag while Lem exhorts "Come on, Ricky!" which the DVD subtitles show as "Come on, Beefy!" because Beefy is about to fall into the creek. At 0:25:01 as the theme ends with Beefy climbing out of the creek, there is another fading transition to the troop marching along a road with Lem and Hoodoo at the rear and Hoodoo chanting the cadence "Hup, two, three, four. Hup, two, three, four" and then asking Lem "We're doin' pretty good for three weeks, huh, Lem?", thereby announcing that the fading transition at 0:25:01 was also a time transition. The creek crossing change of clothes and flag could be explained as another, unannounced, time transition, but then the 0:24:50 insert with the original clothes and flag becomes the goof.

When the Boy Scout Troupe first marches out of Hickory, the boy in the unnamed role of flag bearer has his hair parted on his left side (at 0:17:50), but when they are out in the countryside his hair is parted on his right side (at 0:23:32). Usually, this would mean the film has been flipped left for right, but in that case everyone would have been reversed, whereas Lem's metal is still on his left shirt pocket and his watch is still on his left wrist. This means that either the boy or a production hairdresser parted his hair differently from one day to another, something which could easily happen if the boy usually didn't part his hair at all.

Miscellaneous 

When Lem is selling Hetty notions in the store, he shows her patterns for dresses. The patterns are styles from the 1950's/1960's. The time period for the movie is the early 1930's.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Lem takes Vida to the movies on their first date to see a Ronald Colman and Carole Lombard picture, but his dialogue is interrupted (conveniently) before he can name the movie title. In front of the theater the marquis shows the title of the feature, "Altar Bound", along with the two stars names. The movie "Altar Bound" however, appears to be fictional.

Revealing mistakes 

When Lem and the (1944) Boy Scout troop learn that Hetty Seibert's nephew is taking legal action to stop her from donating her lake property to their troop, the scouts Duke, Jimmy and Tiger are shown at 1:40:50 standing left to right with Tiger wearing a red baseball cap emblazoned with the letter R. Later, at 1:42:12, the boys Tiger, Jimmy and Duke are shown standing left to right with the R on Tiger's cap backwards. The film has been flipped left for right in the later shot.
