Flyboys (2006)

Factual error: While Blaine Rawlings (James Franco) is speaking with the Brothel owner, the song "How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm" is playing in the background. The movie takes place in 1916. However, the sheet music for that song was not published until 1918. The Arthur Fields recording was made on February 2, 1919.
