Cool Hand Luke (1967)

Factual error: "Lucille" is listening to a transistor radio when she washes the car - clear from the size and because the music starts as soon as she turns it on. The first transistor radio wasn't available until 1954, and this movie is set in the very early 50s.

Suggested correction: Another correction points out that this film takes place post-Korean War, so after 1953. The radio fits the timeline.

Continuity mistake: In the last scene of the movie Dragline grabs Boss Godfrey, the man with no eyes, and begins to push and shove him. In the scene you see the hat that Boss Godfrey's wearing fall off. But the next instant, after the camera flashes to another view and immediately comes back the hat mysteriously appears again and falls off again.

Dragline: He was smiling... That's right. You know, that, that Luke smile of his. He had it on his face right to the very end. Hell, if they didn't know it 'fore, they could tell right then that they weren't a-gonna beat him. That old Luke smile. Oh, Luke. He was some boy. Cool Hand Luke. Hell, he's a natural-born world-shaker.
