All the President's Men

Corrected entry: When Bernstein is telephoning a source for confirmation, he does so from a small office in the Washington Post. On the wall of the office is a poster of Pete Seeger and Arlo Guthrie, from a concert tour they made after Spiro Agnew resigned (Arlo alludes to this in the recording of the concert). But the movie takes place before Spiro's resignation, one of the last events mentioned on the teletype at the end.

Correction: Agnew's resignation would have happened within the film as depicted. He resigned on October 10, 1973, which falls within the film's timeline between the break-in on July 17, 1972 and Nixon's resignation on August 9, 1974.

Corrected entry: In the scene in Woodward's apartment after Bernstein's interview with the Bookkeeper, where he is getting all his notes on various bits of paper out of his pockets, the first line Bernstein says in this scene is something the Bookkeeper told him in the interview he'd just had, Bernstein said: " In one six day period $6m dollars came in", but that's not what the BK said, she said:".In one TWO day period $6m dollars came in."

Correction: Character mistake.

Other mistake: The chronology of dates on the teletype printer at the end of the film are not in the correct order. We see "March 13, 1975" followed by "January 3, 1975", which is then followed by two August 1974 dates.
