Corrected entry: "Mrs Joy" says she got the money to pay a publisher for her cook book from the life insurance money from her husband, but the husband committed suicide, shooting himself in the head - you can't claim life insurance when the person commits suicide.


Correction: Some life insurance policies don't exclude suicide. They are all different. I have seen ones that require you to die in a hospital and not a home or nursing home.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Julie is cleaning her mirror prior to the arrival of a New York Times food critic who is coming for dinner, she is wearing a red pin on the right side of the collar on her blue striped blouse. As she hands the cleaning rag to her husband, the pin has moved to the left side of the collar.


Correction: Because she is cleaning a mirror and we are seeing her reflection.


Corrected entry: In the shots of the Boeuf Bourgingnon, there are carrots in the pot. The original recipe from Mastering the Art of French Cooking has no carrots.

Correction: Actually, the recipe does call for one sliced carrot.

Corrected entry: In the very last scene, as Julia Child excitedly tears open the envelope holding her first book, finally published, it is painfully obvious that the envelope was a bubble-wrap sort which wasn't invented yet. The padded envelopes of the day would have been filled with lint-like padding that, given the way she opened it, would have had the added cinematic benefit of dusting the entire scene.

Correction: I saw nothing resembling bubble-wrap in the envelope, not that it would matter. "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" was published in 1961, bubble wrap was invented in 1957.
