Corrected entry: When Walter is sitting in front of the gas station, and the uncles are trying to talk him into coming home, the boy is holding a page from the phone book, looking at an area code map. The page says "US WEST" which did not exist in the 50s or 60s and never existed in Texas where the movie was set. US WEST was created in the 80s as a result of the breakup of AT&T and then existed only in the western US.

Correction: What might appear to read "US WEST" is actually an advert. on the back of the page that reads "LOWEST rates out of state."
