Big Eyes picture

Factual error: In the opening scenes where Margaret drives to San Francisco, her car is an early 50s Meteor. Meteors were a Ford Motor Company brand just above Ford (a bit like Mercury) but were sold only in Canada. Meteors often were only rebadged Fords, like this early 50s model. The rest of 50s and 60s car choices in the film seemed perfect.
