Factual error: In a couple of scenes, most notably the one where Graysmith drives his kid to school, there are newer cars in the background than the year it is supposed to be. In this scene the car is a 1971 Chrysler, when the scene takes place in 1969.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Graysmith goes to Vaughn's house, his jacket is soaked from the rain. Moments later he is sitting in a chair, and we can see his jacket is dry. Not enough time passed in the film for the jacket to dry.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Robert Graysmith is speaking with Sherwood in Sherwood's garden, Robert has his arms crossed. The watch on Robert's left hand changes multiple times between shots.

Question: Are this film's Zodiac killer and the Scorpio Killer in "Dirty Harry" based on the same person?

Chosen answer: Scorpio is loosely based on the Zodiac killer, yes. However, "Zodiac" is made to portray the hunt for the real-life Zodiac killer (as accurately as possible), with only a few ficticious elements thrown in for the sake of story-telling, while "Dirty Harry" is pure fiction.

Question: There is a scene in Robert Graysmith's kitchen where you can see a container of Old Bay Seasoning on the top of the stove. I am from Maryland and I found it unusual that they would have it out in California, especially before the internet came into being. Did I see that wrong? I couldn't find the answer anywhere else.

Chosen answer: Old Bay seasoning has been available on the West Coast for many decades. I can remember my mother using it as far back as the 1960s. That was in Washington state.
