Bridge of Spies

Factual error: When the exchange is made in Berlin it is bitter winter with snow on the ground. But Donovan returns to New York (the TV newsmen is reporting that Powers has been returned "earlier this morning") so it is within hours, and yet the leaves on the trees in NY are green, the grass is green, people are in shirtsleeves. Berlin and NY share the same seasons.

Continuity mistake: When the CIA official is briefing Powers and the other pilots in a hotel room, he sits on a chair in one shot. In the next shot, he jumps a few feet closer to the pilots. (00:23:00)

Factual error: The East German police cars bear the name folkspolizei. The correct spelling is volkspolizei (People's Police).
