Factual error: Don Shirley asks Viggo Mortensen who is singing a certain song on the radio. He replies something to the effect that it's Aretha Franklin, and that she's really something. But it is highly unlikely that Aretha had sufficient (or any) airplay, popularity or name recognition in 1962 to make this scene credible. Columbia Records had her under contract and did not do a particularly good job with her. It wasn't until 1967, after she signed with Atlantic Records, that she became known much at all and her career really took off.
