Corrected entry: Towards the beginning of the film there is a scene in which Capote enters the funeral chapel. He walks to the front where the caskets are positioned, opens one and looks in. Caskets are designed so that, when you are facing one, the head end is to your left. Capote opens the lid at the right side, or foot end, of the casket.

00:14:30 - 00:15:30

Correction: The casket at my grandfather's funeral was open, and his head was to the right when viewing from the front of the casket.

Corrected entry: Early in the film, Capote is reading the newspaper and the words "The New York Times" are reversed and on his right. In the very next shot, the words are correct and on his left.

Correction: The initial shot is viewed in a mirror. You can even see the frame of the mirror at the bottom of the shot.

Truman Capote: It's as if Perry and I grew up in the same house and one day he stood up and went out the back door while I went out the front.



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).
