Character mistake: Jim Garrison and Lou Ivon are discussing the shooting at the book depository and Jim refers to "our friend Clay Shaw" as having introduced General Charles Cavill at the Foreign Policy Commission in New Orleans. However, Garrison does not find out that Clay Bertrand is Clay Shaw until Bill Broussard finds out from his informant and tells Jim in later scenes. (01:18:54)

Factual error: When Lee Bowers' accident scene is shown, a train is passing in the background. Unfortunately, the type of train passing did not come into being until after 1980 - the scene took place in the mid-1960's.

Trivia: In the scene where an FBI agent is harassing one of Garrison's investigators, Bill Brousard, the FBI agent bears a striking resemblance to the real police officer who was also "assassinated" on the same day in Dallas as JFK, Dallas Police Officer J. D. Tippet. It turns out that the actor is Tippet's brother in real life.

Question: Why does Gary Oldman speak with a Russian accent when Lee Harvey Oswald was from New Orleans?

Answer: Lee Harvey Oswald was very sympathetic to the communist ideal, and lived in Russia for a while. He probably adopted the accent as an affectation towards that end.
