Fried Green Tomatoes

Factual error: When Idgie and Ruth ride on the train Idgie's shining hair reveals that there is more light in the wagon than the petroleum lamp they brought with them. (00:29:05)

Continuity mistake: When Ruth climbs onto the train her shoes have rather high heels. When she jumps off her shoes are flat, but when she gets up the heels are back.

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.
