The Bridges of Madison County

Other mistake: When they talk about the distance to the Illinois State Fair from where the movie is set, Francesca asks if it took the husband and kids about three hours. Today, that is probably a 5 1/2 hour trip in a car, let alone in an old truck hauling a trailer.

Factual error: In one scene they are playing "Almost Like Song." Although it had someone singing it to give it an old timey sound, the song wasn't released until 1977, 12 years after this is set.
