Did You Know?
- Carey Mulligan and Ellen Page were originally considered for the role of Jenny Lind, but director Michael Gracey wanted Rebecca Ferguson for the role.
- Around 2/3 of the movie in we see Barnum leaving with Lind to start her US tour. The film shows a horse drawn carriage waiting outside the door, with Lind already seated inside, it collects Barnum, and then leaves down a gravel drive from the house leaving tracks as it goes down the drive. However there is only one set of tracks that is being created as the carriage leaves, there should have been at least one more set as the carriage came to the house to collect Barnum, as well as other marks from use, such as foot/horse prints.
- Phillip Carlyle: I can't just run off and join the circus.
- P.T. Barnum: Why not? You clearly have a flair for show business.
- Phillip Carlyle: There's show business?
- P.T. Barnum: Mm-hmm.
- Phillip Carlyle: I never heard of it.
- P.T. Barnum: 'Cause I just invented it.
