Correction: Being able to see flames on a cake is not the same as being able to see writing on paper.

Corrected entry: When Miss Daisy wrecks her car, the license plate on that car is G-93428. Later you see Hoke walking around the house and it shows a different car with the same license plate.

Correction: In the 1940's license plates in Georgia stayed with the person not the car. You could change the plates over to another car by simply changing the info at the DMV to the new car.

Corrected entry: In the beginning of the ice storm sequence, they show several random shots outside. They show the front porch and there's a big old front porch light blazing away. Kinda hard to do, without power.

Correction: The reason it appears to be "blazing" away is that, upon taking a closer look, you can see it is flickering, indicating an open flame. This would show the viewer that this is a kerosene lamp, or similar type of fuel-burning lamp.

Corrected entry: I'm not an expert in theology but I cant imagine that a Jewish congregation sings Christian hymns at a service in a synagogue.

Correction: They sing "Ein Kelohenu", which is not a Christian hymn.

Corrected entry: While Boolie is discussing the accident with another guy there is a rather large, undefined shadow covering part of the frame on the right side.

Correction: The large shadow is part of the tow truck. You can see it in a earlier scene, with the two men standing in the same position.

Corrected entry: On their first shopping tour Hoke stops the car in front of a huge coke ad on the wall. When he gets out of the car the coke ad is gone and there are two small posters instead.

Correction: The two small posters are on the building next door, the coke sign is on the Piggly Wiggly. The car is facing the Piggly Wiggly.

Pam-I-am

Corrected entry: Miss Daisy is upset that her driver stole a can of salmon. When he arrives at her home for work he has brought a can to replace the one he ate. He then explains to her that he didn't want to eat the left over pork chop. The movie makes a big point of Miss Daisy being Jewish, so why would she have left over pork chops?

Correction: The pork chop was not cooked for Miss Daisy, it was for the cook. Besides the fact that she did not necessarily keep a kosher lifestyle (eating only kosher) nor did she have a kosher kitchen (the pork chop wouldn't have been there in the first place).
