Driving Miss Daisy

Revealing mistake: On the way to the party, near the end, they are supposed to be in Alabama when the car gets pulled over, but the officer's badge, shoulder patch, and car all say Georgia State Police. (00:51:45)

Deliberate mistake: During the ice storm, Hoke brings Miss Daisy coffee because he figured her stove was out. A few scenes before that they are frying chicken on a gas stove. Gas doesn't go out during power outages.

Factual error: As they are driving to Mobile, you can see the yellow center line on the highway. White center lines were in use in the 1950's. Yellow center lines were not standardized on highways in the U.S. Until after 1971.
