Although John Travolta and Quentin Tarantino will always be linked due to their collaborative work on the legendary film, Pulp Fiction, Mr. Travolta is still not afraid to point out inaccuracies in the iconic films of the filmmakers.
Reported by The Wrap, John, who describes himself as an "aviation nerd," noted a subtle error in the film that only a pilot would understand and notice. During a question and answer session after the premiere of his last movie, FanaticJohn could not help but point out a small mistake in Quentin's representation of flying, more specifically, an airplane.
John, referring to the scene in which Leonardo is flying to Italy, states that the scene states that the actor was taking a 747, however, 747 began flying in 1970, a year before the film actually took place in 1969
Mr. Travolta stated that Quentin had "nine months off! He would have been in a Boeing 707!" However, as The Wrap pointed out, the film was less a representation of real historical events and more a tribute to how Quentin remembers the It was in film history.
According to John, going through the small mistake he saw in the film, Quentin's description of the 1960s brought him many memories, considering that he first came to Hollywood in 1969. Travolta really remembers when Sharon Tate was killed and how scared they all were.
That said, the actor claims that Quentin's appreciation for culture and the ability to capture it was the main reason why Quentin is a great filmmaker; He has the ability to capture a moment in time so that it results in a great movie. Ironically, this would not be the only time someone pointed out an inaccuracy in the filmmakers film.
In fact, Quentin's movie, Once upon a time in Hollywood, It caused a lot of controversy over the way the director represented Bruce Lee, played by Mike Moh. As previously reported, Shannon Lee, the daughter of the legendary actor, was not happy with his characterization of his father.
During an interview, Shannon stated that the representation of his father's film was insulting to his legacy, and that it was also false.
