Mommie Dearest

Factual error: When Christina mixes a drink for one of Mommie's "guests" she bends down behind the bar to put a bottle back. Sitting on top of the bar is a Trigger Sprayer bottle of "Fantastick" - a spray that did not come out until the late 60's.

Factual error: About 28 minutes into the film there is a scene where Joan walks into Christina's room and on the floor is a Knickerbocker Raggedy Andy doll. This version of the doll came out in the mid-1960's, yet the film takes place 20 years earlier.

Factual error: When Joan Crawford gets the call she has the part for Mildred Pierce, the telephone receiver has a modern phone connection clip.

Other mistake: When Joan is cutting up her rose garden, she is ranting and raving about how mad she is at Mayer, and how they're calling her box office poison. But if you look closely at her lips, they aren't moving.
