The Godfather: Part II

Plot hole: During Godfather I, when Michael was plotting the assassinations of the 5 family heads, he mentions to his father that his son Anthony is thee years old, and 'reading the funny papers.' In Godfather II, we begin at Anthony's first communion, and the date given is 1958. Yet, later at the party, Kay mentions to Michael that 7 years ago he promised the family would be completely legitimate. This was before they married and Anthony was born. (This promise was part of Michael's proposal to Kay.) 7 years ago would be 1951, so how could Anthony be 3 years old then? (00:10:40 - 00:32:20)

Revealing mistake: In scene at the brothel, with the senator and the dead prostitute, the (dead) prostitute is breathing in the last shot of her, covered in a bloody sheet. (01:15:30)

Trivia: The golden telephone presented to Batista is based in actual events. You can see the actual, gold-plated (not solid gold) telephone in Havana's Museum of the Revolution. The replica made for the movie looks pretty much like the original.
