Fried Green Tomatoes

Continuity mistake: When Ruth climbs onto the train her shoes have rather high heels. When she jumps off her shoes are flat, but when she gets up the heels are back.

Continuity mistake: When Buddy follows his little sister up the tree at the beginning of the film, where they are getting ready for the wedding, they show the mother coming out on the porch and listening in on the conversation. She stands on the porch for a few moments, holding onto one of the pillars and watching her two children in the tree. In the next frame, you see the two up in the tree and under Buddy's arm, you see the mother walk out onto the porch again. (00:09:45)

Continuity mistake: When Evelyn is about to drive into the red VW convertible her hands are on the wheel symmetrically when seen from behind, or one hand is on top when seen from the front in alternating shots. (01:15:35)

Idgie Threadgoode: You're never gonna jump, are you?
Ruth: Don't you ever say never to me.

Ruth: I can understand having a funeral for an arm, I just don't know WHY she insists on calling him Stump.
Sipsey: Miss Idgie says everybody else will be calling him that, we might as well be the first.

Question: Is Ninny Threadgood (Jessica Tandy) really Idgie? It seems so at the end, when Evelyn finds the honey at Ruth's grave. Both Ninny and Evelyn share a sly smile, but nothing is said for sure. Anyone know?

Chosen answer: No, Ninny is exactly who she says she is. It's clearer in the book because Ninny dies and Evelyn finds the honey and the note for Ruth when Evelyn goes to see Ninny's grave.
