Twice in the movie there are shots of trumpets where the film was reversed so it appears that a trumpet is the reverse of how it is actually constructed. As an example, on a real trumpet, the lead pipe runs along the right side of the trumpet, and in the movie, there are two shots where the lead pipe is running along the left side. It appears that this was done so that the direction of the band - director being shown to the left with the horns blowing toward the left from the right - could be maintained.
