Corrected entry: Some of the computers shown in the scenes at the newspaper, set in the 1970's, are a newer style than what was available at the time. They look like they are from the 1980's.

Correction: This needs to be more specific. Which computers? Which scenes?

Corrected entry: In the scene the morning after the taxi driver murder, the detectives were driving on a San Francisco street where a 'bus lane only' diamond was visible/painted on the street. These did not exist then.

Correction: The first bus lane was actually made in 1939, and were highly used by the 60's, during the zodiac killings.

Corrected entry: When Darlene is parking her car in a "more quiet place", you can see the tire marks of where she is going to park, from previous takes.

Correction: She's parking in a public park, right in a parking stall that may have been used by any nmber of previous vehicles, not necessarily hers. There are other vehicles coming in going during the scene, which suggests the park was a fairly popular place for a make out point.

Corrected entry: When Robert Graysmith goes to Arthur Leigh Allen's work place The "TEXT" on the screen reads "1983". The calendar in the shop behind Leigh shows the date "February 1980".

Correction: Not necessarily a mistake. I still have last year's calendar hanging in my kitchen. Some of us are just lazy.


Corrected entry: Toward the end of the movie there is the scene where Robert Graysmith goes to Arthur Leigh Allen's work place and stares at him for a long time. In this scene you can see Leigh's name tag, but his name is spelled "Lee" not "Leigh". This could be considered not a mistake, however in an earlier scene we see case files with his name specifically spelled "Leigh".

Correction: Case files and a name tag come from completely different sources. Entirely possible for the name tag to be spelled incorrectly, and just not corrected by Arthur yet.

Paul Avery: What do you do for fun?
Robert Graysmith: I love to read.
Paul Avery: Mhmm.
Robert Graysmith: Umm, I enjoy books.
Paul Avery: Those are the same things.



In a couple of scenes, most notably the one where Graysmith drives his kid to school, there are newer cars in the background than the year it is supposed to be. In this scene the car is a 1971 Chrysler, when the scene takes place in 1969.



The theme tune to the news station when they are trying to arrange the meeting is the theme to Channel 9 news in Australia, played unmodified.
