JFK

Factual error: In the scene where there is a train passing, the cars are marked "Burlington Northern." There was NO Burlington Northern until 1970, 7 years AFTER the shooting.

Visible crew/equipment: During one of the railroad men's eyewitness accounts of what he heard at the time of the assassination, for only a second on the extreme far right of the screen during the obviously re-enacted footage of the fateful motorcade, you can see just ahead and on the driver's side of the Lincoln limosuine the white sedan lead car; however, you can see it is mounted with what appears to be a boom microphone and other equipment and crew members in the car - one has a headset on.

Factual error: In the aerial shot where they are driving over the Lake Pontchartrain Bridge two spans are depicted. In 1963 there was only one span. I know this to be true because I lived in New Orleans/Mandeville at the time. Anybody in NOLA could verify this.

Trivia: In JFK Wayne Knight plays Numa Bertel. In Seinfeld Wayne Knight plays Newman. In JFK he was used in Jim Garrison's demonstration of the single bullet theory. In Seinfeld he and Kramer told Jerry a story exactly the same as the single bullet theory only that it was spit that hit them not a bullet. Jerry then does the same demonstration that Jim Garrison did in JFK to explain the story. The layout is also the same in both the film and Seinfeld.

Trivia: In the scene where an FBI agent is harassing one of Garrison's investigators, Bill Brousard, the FBI agent bears a striking resemblance to the real police officer who was also "assassinated" on the same day in Dallas as JFK, Dallas Police Officer J. D. Tippet. It turns out that the actor is Tippet's brother in real life.

Question: Why does Gary Oldman speak with a Russian accent when Lee Harvey Oswald was from New Orleans?

Chosen answer: Lee Harvey Oswald was very sympathetic to the communist ideal, and lived in Russia for a while. He probably adopted the accent as an affectation towards that end.
