Corrected entry: In the scene where Percy was placed in a straightjacket and locked into solitary confinement, the other guards tape his mouth shut with clear plastic tape. Such tape didn't exist in the 30's.
Corrected entry: When Detterick is shouting for his daughters, he calls them Karla and Cora. In the written report that Edgecomb is reading, however, the girls' names are Kathy and Cora.
Corrected entry: Shortly after the execution run by Percy Edgecomb and his wife drink RC Cola and eat fried chicken out of a plastic food container. Containers like these did not exist in the 30's.
Corrected entry: During the scene when the guards are about to spray Wild Bill with the hose, Bill takes off his belt and wraps it around his hand, ready for a fight. The problem with this is that death row prisoners aren't even allowed to have shoelaces, let alone belts. They could hurt someone else or try to kill themselves with it. (01:15:00)
Corrected entry: In the scene where the big black man has healed the woman with cancer and she has got up to give him a necklace the woman who is thin has to unclip the necklace from around her neck, but then she just slides it over the big black mans head, which is much bigger than the woman's.
Corrected entry: When Paul is talking to his lady friend about he and Mr Jingles being lonely and watching his friends die he forgets to mention, and she doesn't pick up on the fact, that there must be one more friend still alive: Hal's wife Melinda.
Corrected entry: During the scene of Eduard Delacroix's execution, there is a quartz clock shown. Although invented in the late 1920's, quartz clocks were not on the market until many, many years later.
Corrected entry: Right before the guards drug Bill with the drink, Bill wakes up with his mattress on the floor and the rest of his bed leaning up against the wall because he trashed his room during Del's execution. After he drinks the drink and passes out, his bed is back together again. (01:57:55)
Corrected entry: You'd think prison guards on Death Row would have known a little more about safe restraints, the way they bind and gag Percy could eventually kill him. They stuff a handkerchief all the way into his mouth, then tape his mouth closed. The gag reflex could suck the handkerchief into his windpipe and suffocate him in about three of four minutes. Even if he might be able to find away around the danger of suffocation the fact remains that no trained, experienced prison guard is ever going to restrain someone in that way.
