Capote

Factual error: Halfway into the film, a scene shows Capote talking on a beige telephone. The receiver is a modular (plug in) type. Modular phones were not introduced until after 1966. The time frame for this movie is 1959 through 1963. All other scenes in this movie show the correct type of receiver (wired, not plug-in).

Factual error: The Spanish taxi cab has red plates. In that time period plates were white.

Truman Capote: It's as if Perry and I grew up in the same house and one day he stood up and went out the back door while I went out the front.

Question: Near the beginning of the film, Capote is talking about a story involving a gay black man being in love with a Jew. Since all the rest of his anecdotes involve real people and/or works, does anyone know which book he's talking about?

Chosen answer: He is talking about 'Giovanni's Room' a novel by James Baldwin.

Question: Dewey's wife said that Breakfast at Tiffany's was banned at the Holcomb, Kansas library. Anybody know why?

Chosen answer: The book is somewhat different than the movie. There are several subtle references to the main character's questionable sexual preferences and possible prostitution.
