PG-13 | | Biography, Crime, Drama
A seasoned FBI agent pursues Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before his 19th birthday, successfully forged millions of dollars' worth of checks while posing as a Pan Am pilot, a doctor, and a legal prosecutor.
When they show Frank, going to the bank for the first time cashing a check, as a phony pilot, they show a red seal 100 dollar bill being given; since he was only 17 years old, this would've made the year 1965; the red seal 100 dollar bills weren't introduced until 1966.
Frank, would you like to say grace?
Roger Strong: Unless you're not comfortable.
Frank Abagnale, Jr.: Absolutely. Two little mice fell into a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned, but the second mouse, he struggled so hard that he eventually churned that cream...
When Frank, Jr. runs away to NYC he buys a one way ticket from New Rochelle to Grand Central Terminal for $3.50, which is way too high. At about the same time (1966) a round trip ticket from Bridgeport (more than twice as far from GCT) cost $3.51.
In the closing credits, Brian Howe is listed as playing "Tom Fox" and Frank John Hughes is listed as playing "Earl Amdursky". However in the film, Howe played Amdursky and Hughes played Fox. However, this was corrected for the DVD release.
In the French language version of the film, Frank teaches his high school Spanish class instead of French.
