I saw the movie "Cafe Society" this afternoon, and found it very entertaining and very enjoyable. But, in one scene, a pianist plays on a Sojin piano. The movie is set in the late 1930's, and Sojin pianos were introduced in 1964. Doesn't anybody check these things?

Woody Allen is well-known as a musician and a stickler for detail. It's odd he didn't catch that. (Didn't see the movie.)

As a viewer I look for those piano details all the time. I occasionally see piano "mistakes" llike this one.

It reminds me, there is a place in Philly called The Eastern State Penitentiary. Al Capone spent time there and his cell. was lavish - with beautiful furniture and a radio.

A child touring the place with his family pointed out that the radio was 10 years too new to have been used by Al Capone. (This made the news - slow news day?)

The community technical college where I work recently started a Film Industry training program to train students in the fine art of working on movie sets and doing all kinds of technical things that movie techies do. The dean of the program has worked in the film industry most of his working career. In fact, Georgia is becoming one of more popular states in the US where movies and films of all kind are made.

It's kind of humorous that the dean of the Film Industry program says all the students who enroll in the program want to be movie stars instead of being a film industry technician. smile

As far as the Sojin brand piano appearing in a dated movie well before it's time, yep, that is a biggie movie boo-boo.

I'm hoping that one of these days, I'll get the opportunity to play the piano in one of the movies made here in Ga. and get discovered. grin

Okay, there's nothing wrong with fantasizing... smile

A bit of an Allenian humour in his movie, perhaps?

Bonjour Chat Noir, we saw the movie yesterday and noticed too, amongst others odd details, this unrelated piano — although seems zoomed in deliberately. After searching the Web about that particular make, I found your (also) perspicace observation! Just to list another incongruous scene of Cafe Society, the piano player during "Jeepers Creepers" is not playing the part we are hearing...

....and the miniscule clip of the Los Angeles skyline contain a bit more high-rises than there were in the 30's....

I never saw the remake of Titanic. (not the original by Dr. Goebbels, apparently somebody made a musical of the story). I am, however, told that the band plays a tune which hadn't been written when Titanic sank. There were other anachronisms but that was the musical one.
