Factual error: While handling the ignition coil cable to the distributor cap, Joe Pesci tells De Niro that the timing chain needs adjustment in his truck. A truck of that year with an inline Chevy motor would not have a timing chain at all, instead this truck would be equipped with a direct drive timing gear. Even if it had a timing chain, it would be behind the water pump and a cover. It would have been a several hour job to replace, not possible to adjust it.
Factual error: In 1940 3 of Alf White's men are arrested. As they are taken out of the pub they were in Alf and his son stand in the doorway. To their left (viewer's right) are posters for Floyd Patterson (who would have been aged 4 or 5 at the time) and the Platters (formed in 1952) and Lonnie Donegan (started performing 1949).

Factual error: The damning vials of medication are in close-ups. It is printed on the label that we're talking about 20 ml vials. The morphine vial is 5 mg/ml. When Marta says that she gave Harlan 100 mg of drug she is then wrong; unless she administered the full vial. The two vials have in fact different concentrations: the Ketorolac is in a 30 mg/ml solution, so Marta would have administered 600 mg of ketorolac tromethamine, not 100. The maximum dose for a geriatric patient is 60 mg per day; even the fact that she'd administer it in IV for days for just a pulled shoulder is definitely overdoing it anyway - and she puts even morphine on top of that.
