The Outsiders

Factual error: The trains in this movie set in 1965 are from Burlington Northern and the St Louis and San Francisco Railway (Frisco). Burlington Northern was not around until 1970.

Factual error: The story is set in 1965, yet it shows many modern (as of filming in 1983) pieces of medical equipment, such as disposable plastic nasal cannula, modern plastic IV tubing and cut offs, etc. Also most hospitals in the 1960s still had open wards with many patients cordoned off by curtains, instead of private rooms as depicted in the movie.
