Factual error: The Map of Europe used for plotting their route displays the Netherlands incorrectly, showing its two major central polders (low-lying reclaimed landmasses surrounded by dikes) which weren't drained and finally completed until 1968.
Factual error: The view from the aircraft Jane is flown home from France in shows the modified double engine pod of the 747 famously at Dunsfold Airfield, Surrey. Also a late livery grey RAF VC-10 parked in the distance. Also the engines of the plane she is in are upgrades and not right for the year it is supposed to be happening. (01:23:20)
Factual error: "Can't take my eyes off you" was released in May 1967. The recording scene of this song shows an Ampeg SVT amplifier in the background. Ampeg SVT was not available before 1969 and the specific model shown on the scene (with white rocker toggle) is a later 1976-1979 model. (01:54:10)Gil Disatnik
Factual error: The helicopter flown is a Bell 407. The movie is set in '88 and the first flight of this type was 1994.
Factual error: As the marchers start through the streets before they gather at the Edmund Pettis Bridge, they pass by a shop with a Pepsi sign. The Pepsi logo, however, is from the 1980s-1990s.
Factual error: Roland enters the train to go to the war, in 1914, with "Spanish Flu", but that was the (wrong) name given to the 1918 flu pandemic, which lasted from spring 1918 through spring or early summer 1919.
Factual error: In the opening scenes where Margaret drives to San Francisco, her car is an early 50s Meteor. Meteors were a Ford Motor Company brand just above Ford (a bit like Mercury) but were sold only in Canada. Meteors often were only rebadged Fords, like this early 50s model. The rest of 50s and 60s car choices in the film seemed perfect.
