Mame (1974)

Factual error: At the end of the movie, Mame takes Peter with her on a trip to Siberia. However, at this point in the timeline, it's the late 1940s, meaning that Stalin was still in power, so even Auntie Mame would be crazy to think of vacationing in Russia. Not to mention the difficulties of getting Peter a visa to travel to the USSR at the last minute. (In the stage version, the destination was India, rather than Siberia, which makes a lot more sense).

Vera Charles: However, in 'Fallen Angel' all of my clothes were done by Chanel! She said to me, 'Cheri' - she always called me Cheri - 'Cheri' she said, clothes not only make the woman, clothes make the world!' Oh she's brilliant! Sell her own mother, but brilliant. The costumes for my new show are so dazzling, that we expect complaints from the orchestra.

Vera Charles: Oh my God. Somebody's been sleeping in my dress.

Vera: I have an astronomical discovery for you. The man in the moon is a bitch.
