25 Hollywood Gaffes That Somehow Made the Final Cut

Django Unchained — Where Did Those Sunglass Come From?

Leave it to Quentin Tarantino to take some liberties with his 2012 revisionist film Django Unchained. In the movie, Jamie Foxx plays the titular character Django, a slave who was separated from his wife, Broomhilda. After escaping from his captors, Django has nothing but revenge on his mind. Before setting on his journey to free Broomhilda, Django outfits himself with a flashy garb featuring an accessory that hadn’t yet been popularized in America — a pair of sunglasses. Such eyewear had not yet been introduced in the US (Django Unchained takes place during the Civil War and sunglasses weren’t worn until the 20th century), but Tarantino chose to bypass this detail for stylistic effect.
