** When Ray hears "If you build it, he will come", Ray assumes that "he" is Shoeless Joe Jackson. He also assumes that "Ease his pain" refers to Terrence Mann. When those ArcWords are said for the last time, by Jackson himself, the "he" being referred to is revealed to be someone else entirely.

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The Japanese poster described the film as a man who is on a quest to meet with the ghost of his baseball playing father. It was sort of a cultural shift in focus, since the Japanese always emphasized ancestry.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: [[http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/g/grahamo01.shtml Moonlight Graham]] was in fact a ballplayer who appeared in only one MLB game, before becoming a doctor in Chisholm, Minnesota. The film takes some liberties with his story. Graham died in 1965, but producer Francis Ford Coppola wanted to see "The Godfather" on a marquee so Ray goes back to 1972 to find him. Additionally, while it's true that Graham did not get a chance to bat, he played two innings on defense instead of one.

''Field of Dreams'' has a very strange concept, but what it carries is an underlying metaphor of faith and redemption, along with the simple joy of a father and son playing catch. It is one of Costner's most well known films and also one of James Earl Jones' most famous roles outside of voicing [[StarWars Darth Vader]] & [[Disney/TheLionKing Mufasa]].
