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: Not only is the tractor the wrong vintage, it is pulling a round baler that wasn't invented until the 1970's.
