Corrected entry: Skeeter uses correction fluid when changing a word she has just typed. In 1963, a correction tape would have been used. Liquid paper wasn't invented until 1966.
Corrected entry: After little Mae finally pees for Abilene, her mother impatiently snatches her off the potty. However, it is obvious her little ruffled panties were never pulled down. They were already up.
Corrected entry: During the scene when Hilley is driving in a hurry out to Skeeter's house after the book is released, there is an aerial shot where we see her car careening around a corner. She nearly runs off the road and is fish tailing down the road. Ahead of her car, skid marks from a fish tailing vehicle can be seen. These are most likely from additional takes of the same scene.
