Factual error: There is a picture of Elvis in Jacy Farrow's bedroom. The film depicts a small Texas town in 1951 to 1952. Elvis' first recording was in 1953 and he did not become famous by any sense of the word before 1954.

Factual error: The movie takes place in 1951 and 1952, but Jacy's parents were driving a 1953 Cadillac convertible. Dagmars (bumper bullets) are apparent on this car and they were introduced in 1953.

Factual error: When Sonny is driving through town and looking in the pool hall and diner he passes by a car in the background that can be seen through the passenger window of the truck. The car is a late 60's Impala or Biscayne while the film is supposed to take place in the early 50s. (00:50:00)
