Cinderella Man

Visible crew/equipment: If you look very closely when Braddock makes his son Jay return the salami to the Butchers, you can see the camera in the window of the butcher shop. It is more evident when they walk out of the store.

Deliberate mistake: To make Jim Braddock look more heroic, Max Baer is portrayed as being very mean and hateful. In fact, the real Max Baer was an extremely pleasant man who was devastated when Frankie Campbell died after fighting him. Many boxing historians and sportswriters have complained about this inaccurate depiction of Baer.
