Misery

Character mistake: When Paul is looking through Annie's album, there is an article on her as a nurse. The headline has her name as Annie M. Wilkes. But, in the accompanying photo her name is listed as Annie C. Wilkes.

Character mistake: When the sheriff questions hotel clerk the clerk tells him he left in his 65 Mustang. It was in fact a 66 Mustang that went over the edge.

Revealing mistake: When Paul goes through Annie's scrapbook, a fast reader may notice that several newspaper clippings (although having different headlines and being based on separate events), have the exact same story underneath. The text has simply been repeated, rather than a new report being created for each story.
