Driving Miss Daisy

Other mistake: In the scene where Miss Daisy asks Hoke if he has had the air conditioning checked, the car they are in doesn't have air conditioning, as there are no clear tubes that transition the airflow from the rear package shelf to the ceiling vents that aren't there.

Factual error: As they are driving to Mobile, you can see the yellow center line on the highway. White center lines were in use in the 1950's. Yellow center lines were not standardized on highways in the U.S. Until after 1971.
