Fried Green Tomatoes

In Ninny Threadgoode's stories, The Georgia court declares Idgie and Big George innocent for the murder of Frank Bennett. Ruth dies, and Idgie relizes that Ruth was her best friend. Back in real life, Evelyn Couch decides to let Ninny Threadgoode move in with her and her husband, after Ninny's house in the town of Whistlestop was destroyed. Evelyn discovers that Ninny is in fact Idgie, and has been telling Evelyn the story of her own life.-Actually that isnt true. It is very confusing and for ten years i finally read the book and discover among several other things that Ninny is in fact who she says she is and Idgie is still alive.

Continuity mistake: When Evelyn is about to drive into the red VW convertible her hands are on the wheel symmetrically when seen from behind, or one hand is on top when seen from the front in alternating shots. (01:15:35)

Question: Is Ninny Threadgood (Jessica Tandy) really Idgie? It seems so at the end, when Evelyn finds the honey at Ruth's grave. Both Ninny and Evelyn share a sly smile, but nothing is said for sure. Anyone know?

Chosen answer: No, Ninny is exactly who she says she is. It's clearer in the book because Ninny dies and Evelyn finds the honey and the note for Ruth when Evelyn goes to see Ninny's grave.
