Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, our hero is just a kid, hanging out in town playing with two other kids; the date is approx. early 1960's. Out of nowhere, an airplane appears and lands on the airstrip just outside of town. Everybody jumps onto their various vehicles to go see the excitement. In one brief shot of these vehicles driving away from the main hotel, we can see a satellite dish on top of the hotel. This technology was not available at that time. See more »
