    Noting the movie was supposed to take place in 1962... when the Delta boys went to the bar to see Otis Day and the Knights, anyone notice the Fender P-Bass?

    Oval tuners. Dated 4 years after the movie took place.

    I'm a loser for noticing. :D

    Unfortunatly that's 2(+x) to the cool scale, and x = how much went up on the nerd scale, so that's -20 to the cool scale, sorry :p

    You should go to www.nitpickers.com and post that. I don't think anyone else has picked that error out yet.

    Btw it was John, not Jim Belushi.

    The bass in that movie was a dead ringer for my '64 P-bass.

    How about the not-so vintage Fender instruments seen on Happy Days?

    Another BTW-
    Belushi did not go with the other Delta boys(Otter, Boone, Pinto, & Flounder) to the R&B bar to see Otis, my man.
    Belushi saw Otis & The Knights at the Delat House frat/toga party(in the basement).
