Factual error: Leopold recognizes the telephone as the "talking telegraph" he saw at a fair "last year" in the scene where Stuart calls home from the hospital. The first public showing of the telephone was at Philadelphia Centennial Exposition which opened in May of 1876. (He is from April of 1876.) That aside, if he saw a talking telegraph in 1875, it would've been quite a feat because inventor Alexander Bell submitted his patent in 1876.
