Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie Everett makes it clear that it is the 17th and the valley is to be flooded on the 21st. Problem is a few nights later when the boys are out in the woods enjoying stolen pie, the newspaper that declares that the Soggy Bottom Boys are a hit is dated July 13, 1937. (00:40:37)
Corrected entry: After falling off the train, a pump car approaches the three fellows travelling the same direction from which the train came. If this were so, the pump car would had to have been miraculously placed onto the tracks just after the train passed by.
Corrected entry: Near the beginning of the movie, one of the characters states that it is the 17th and the valley would be flooded on the 21st. Yet, throughout the movie, there are too many nights that go by for it to just be the few days when the valley finally floods.
Corrected entry: At the end of the film, when they are floating on the coffin in the flooded valley, there is a current moving from the right to the left. While other objects float away in the current, they stay dead still, obviously they are tied down. (01:39:45)
Corrected entry: When the three guys get in George Nelson's car he hangs out the window and asks the guy in the back seat to hand him his gun, as it is handed to him there is no ammo clip in it, but within no time he is firing the fully loaded weapon even though he had no time to load it.
Corrected entry: The Soggy Bottom Boys was a real band.
Corrected entry: When Baby Face Nelson is firing his Tommy Gun at the pursuing police officers, there is a shot where he fires off a burst, re-cocks the gun, and then fires again. Why would he do that? He hasn't changed the magazine, the gun hasn't jammed, and he isn't out of ammunition. So all he's ended up doing is ejecting a perfectly good .45 bullet from his sub-machine gun.
