Corrected entry: Rick Dalton is listening to his car radio. A "KHJ, Los Angeles" jingle is heard, followed by The Real Don Steele saying "It's 3:31" as a song begins playing. The station identification was always given at the top of the hour, never at half-past, and the KHJ disc jockeys never announced the time when a song began. They gave the time only when a song ended, prior to a commercial break. (01:23:00)

Correction: Are you sure? I listened to the original aircheck (You can look it up on YT, "The Real Don Steele - Radio Aircheck May 25, 1968" around 31:30 min, and it is the same as in the movie.

You are correct. I just heard the original aircheck. I listened to KHJ a lot in 1968 because my favorite station, KFWB, had switched to an all-news format in March. I didn't recall KHJ ever airing the legal ID at half-past the hour. Obviously they did.

Corrected entry: Mr. Wilkins, hoping to foreclose on Michael Banks' home, leafs through a register listing all the bank's shareholders, then tells Michael, "I don't see your name." After Michael leaves, Wilkins rips out a page and throws it into the fireplace. At the top of the page is the name "Banks" in large letters but each of the other pages lists several names all written in small letters in a column on the left side of the page.

Correction: Why is this a mistake? There could be several reasons why Banks' name is more prominent. It could be based on the fact that George Banks was an important bank official or it could be dependent upon the number of shares owned.

Girl Shy (1924)

Corrected entry: Harold Lloyd has written a manuscript for a book and is traveling by train to take the manuscript to a publisher. Jobyna Ralston, sitting next to him, grabs the manuscript and holds it in front of her. She is wearing gloves but in the close-up of the manuscript in her hands, her hands are bare. (00:24:00)

Correction: Please rewatch the scene. In the closeup of Mary holding the wrapped manuscript she is indeed wearing gloves. Note the wrinkled material and the seams, as well as her covered thumbnails.

I froze that scene and carefully studied it and it appeared that Ralston's hands were bare. Her thumbnails were visible. I shall look at it again. In addition, the background of that close-up is completely blank. Ralston's clothing and the interior of the train are nowhere to be seen.

I took a screenshot of the closeup which shows the gloves, but can't share it. I agree about the background problem in this closeup, there's nothing behind the manuscript being held up. The same thing happens in all the closeups of the manuscript when it's being held, because it was shot against a solid blank background. Submit this, since it's a valid mistake.
