Best biography movie mistakes of 2016

1

Sully

Continuity mistake: While Katie Couric is interviewing Sully, the first shot shows her with a portfolio in her hand and she is not wearing a ring on her left hand. The camera goes to Sully, then back to Katie and suddenly there is a ring on her left hand.

Factual error: Women's stockings had seams in 1944. When people are dancing at the party in Bayfield's apartment, the backs of women's legs appear in enough shots to show that their stockings, anachronistically, are seamless.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, inside the hotel room in Hong Kong. Before Snowden puts the two cellphones belonging to his guests in the microwave, there are already two different cellphones lying in there. After the point of view switches to the microwave's turntable, the two original cellphones have magically disappeared.

Factual error: Once the men first climb up to "Hacksaw Ridge," the camera pans over numerous corpses. One of them has an M1 Helmet lying on its top to where the liner is seen. The liner has the web suspension straps cross each other instead of being tied in the center. This means the liner is a Vietnam era type, and not World War II.

Matdan97

Factual error: The film is set in 1987 and Eddie ends up in hospital. However the bed we see him on is a fairly modern one with hand controls to raise and lower the bed. Not available in 1987.

A Demon

Factual error: When Eakins returns to the house after he swears an oath to the union. You can see a thermostat on the wall behind him.

Race

Factual error: In the Templehoff Airport flyover scene there are Soviet era Antonov An-12 propeller driven aircraft on the tarmac. These were first used by the Soviets in 1953.

8

Jackie

New today Factual error: In the scenes where they show Jackie drinking alcohol they use Stolichnaya Vodka that is on a glass table with its label turned. This vodka could not have been her drink of choice as it was first imported in 1972 through a deal Pepsi Co made with the Russian government.

Factual error: In the wedding and arrest scene the U.S. Customs Service officials have police attack dogs. The U.S. Customs Service only has drug detection dogs.
