Far and Away (1992)

1 corrected entry

(2 votes)

Corrected entry: In the scene when they are all racing to get the land to own, there are several women racing by themselves. Women couldn't own property in the 19th century, so why would they bother to race for it themselves?

Correction: Single women could own property. Married women were property themselves, so anything they had went to their men. Plus, this is the American west - before it was divided up into states and incorporated into the United States, and women could vote in most of the territories. Owning property would be a small thing.


Factual error: When Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise arrive in America, the year is 1892, but the flags being passed out at the pier have 50 stars on them. In 1892, there were 44 states.
