Capote

Factual error: Halfway into the film, a scene shows Capote talking on a beige telephone. The receiver is a modular (plug in) type. Modular phones were not introduced until after 1966. The time frame for this movie is 1959 through 1963. All other scenes in this movie show the correct type of receiver (wired, not plug-in).

Factual error: The Spanish taxi cab has red plates. In that time period plates were white.

Continuity mistake: When Capote tells Alvin Dewey the title of the novel in the diner, Capote's head positions have no continuity between the back and front shots.

Continuity mistake: While having dinner at the home of Alvin and Marie Dewey, Capote takes a large drag off a cigarette. The shot then immediately changes to close-up, so it appears as though he never exhales.

Continuity mistake: When Truman is paying the warden for unlimited access to the two killers, he places a brown envelope with the money in it on the desk between them. In one shot he just places the envelope then draws back, but in another shot he places the envelope and pushes it forward before drawing back.

Continuity mistake: When Truman goes to see Perry's sister, Truman is sitting on a sofa in the living room, and behind the sofa is a large bank of windows. In the first shot there are 2 children playing in the backyard, but a second later, the children have moved - in fact only one can be seen at far left of the windows.

Continuity mistake: When Truman and Nell go to dinner at the head detective's house, Truman and Nell are sitting in the kitchen so they can talk to the detective's wife as she cooks dinner. There are 3 full martini glasses on the bench, which Truman then fills up in a different shot.

Continuity mistake: The first time we see Truman trying to feed Perry baby food, the spoon with baby food on it changes position depending on the position of the camera: from Perry's viewpoint the spoon is very close to his mouth, but from Truman's viewpoint the spoon is further away.
