Jersey Boys

Jersey Boys (2014)

Factual error: In a scene set in the 50's where Tommy DeVito visits Joe Pesci as "Joey" is working as a pin-setter at a bowling alley, brand new Brunswick "Max" bowling pins are visible and used in the manual pin-setters. Brunswick did not introduce the "Max" bowling pin until the 90's.

Factual error: "Can't take my eyes off you" was released in May 1967. The recording scene of this song shows an Ampeg SVT amplifier in the background. Ampeg SVT was not available before 1969 and the specific model shown on the scene (with white rocker toggle) is a later 1976-1979 model.

Factual error: Taxi cab that drops off Frankie and Bob at Brill Building (early 60s) says $1.00 for first 1/9 mile and 10 cents for each 1/9 mile thereafter. That was the rate starting 04/1980. The rate for early 60s (which started 07/1952) was 25 cents for the first 1/5 mile and five cents for each 1/5 mile thereafter. The next increase came in 12/1964 when the first 1/5 mile jumped to 35 cents.

Bob Gaudio: I remember thinking there was something off with this guy. This was 1959, people thought Liberace was just theatrical.
