    "Saving Mr. Banks" and its most Epic FAIL!

    Someone didn't do their research...



    Shame on you, whoever did the costume design for this production. The scene is set in 1961. The thin plastic oval nametags did not come into first use at Disneyland until late 1962, and general widespread use until spring of 1963. And they only stopped using the metal badges because the company that supplied them went out of business. The Cast in the scene should all be wearing these...



    I cannot in good conscience see this movie now.

    Was plastic even invented in 1961? That "vintage" nametag almost looks steampunk!

    Seriously, if that is what constitutes an epic fail ... the movie should be "watchable"

    Yes it was invented by that time. Disneyland had a entire house made up of plastic as early as 1957

    I would hardly constitue this as an epic fail.. maybe a small fail but hardly an epic one. The year in the various descriptions flexes between 1961 and 1964 so the film might be set between 62'-64' when Disneyland is in it.

    this right here cuts the costume designers some slack. in fact, they may have different badges for the earlier years and this picture doesn't reflect that. not an epic fail in my opinion, and definitely not a reason to not see the movie.

    and on a side note, those cast members sure look dapper!

    Re: "Saving Mr. Banks" and its most Epic FAIL!

    This seems almost as poor a reason to not see a movie as not seeing a movie because it was in black and white as proposed in another recent thread.

    Is this a mistake? Possibly. It depends on what year is supposed to be depicted in that scene. Is it a deal breaker? Not for me. Maybe if they turned it into Walt Disney: Vampire Hunter it would be. A simple name tag? I don't think so.

    Not sure when it is supposed to take place, BUT casting calls for extras for the Disneyland poritions mentioned that they were focusing on fashions as of the summer of 1960. Doesn't mean it does take take in summer 1960, but that is the fashion of the guests that the movie is shooting for.

    Its the movies! Things get used based on what looks the best on film. And as was said before are we positive this is from 61 in the film?

    If that is the most epic fail then they did a pretty darn good job.

    Well certain fashions can last for awhile. Take denim pants for an example they lasted for quite a long time. Any who I love those costumes and I would love the chance to wear that anywhere. Looking at the picture I assume that they "work" at the Golden Horseshoe either as waiters/ servers or in the orchestra pit.

    This isn't an epic fail. This is just a minor costume error.

    Absolutely disgraceful. How dare they insult the history of Disneyland. This project is going to be a bomb. Once word of this atrocity gets out, bad word-of-mouth will ensue, and no one will want to see a movie that is already doomed to bomb at the box office, regardless of the amount of Disney fans and Tom Hanks fans alike. Yuck. We should boycott this sucker.
