The Doors

Other mistake: Early in the film, before they were signed to a record deal the Doors were playing small clubs around L.A. in 1966. After one of these gigs, a promoter comes up and asks Jim Morrison how old he is, in which he replies "21." Morrison was born in 1943, so the youngest he could have been is 22, not 21.

Factual error: During the scene where Morrison is sitting on the ledge of a building and drinking, you can see a billboard advertisement for a film below him on the street. Even though this scene is set around 1969, the ad is for the Eddie Murphy-Nick Nolte film, Another 48 Hrs.
