    Default The Valachi Papers

    Probably one of the biggest goofs in cinema history, the Twin Towers (under construction) are shown clearly in the background, even though the movie's storyline is set in the 1930s. Starring Charles Bronson and the Twin Towers.

    That list is very incomplete. For one there's a WTC shot in the French Connection (while they were under construction) and secondly in comics the WTC is featured MANY times in Spider-Man and other Marvel comics (with so many of them set in NYC that's not a surprise).

    A minor major goof for history here as well, in National Lampoon's European Vacation (made mid 1980's) shows a shot towards the end of the film of the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan. The WTC isn't even IN the shot even though the Twin Towers were completed in the 1970's.

    Sorry, that didn't have anything to do with the topic, I was just pointing it out.
