Movie-goers count almost 30 gaffes in ‘Lincoln’

Oscars-favorite ‘Lincoln’ may receive another, less-prestigious honor as the historical drama is already lining up to be one of the most error-filled movies of 2013.

The Abraham Lincoln biopic opened in North America in 2012 but gets its main worldwide release in January and February.
Eagle-eyed viewers have already spotted almost 30 gaffes in the film, eclipsing the 26 errors that landed the James Bond blockbuster “Skyfall” second place in the 2012 list.
Mistakes detailed on movie website include a vanishing cigarette, a torrential downpour which suddenly becomes a light drizzle, a scene featuring a bust of President Woodrow Wilson, who was only a child during the years in which the movie is set, bright daylight outside the White House at 5 p.m. in November, and a disappearing American flag.
Many other mistakes are factual errors such as Lincoln’s secretary speaking without his German accent, the president’s son Tad – who had a cleft palate – talking perfectly, and an official missing out California during a Congressional roll call of the states.
Lincoln has been nominated for 12 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director for Steven Spielberg, and Best Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis.

  2. Hey there, This write-up is rather educational and fun to read. I am a huge follower from the elements blogged about. I also adore reading the comments, but it looks as being a whole lot of readers need to stay on topic to try and add something to the original topic. I would also encourage all of you to bookmark this page for the most employed service to help get the term out. Thanks

    I wonder if he had one of those manual digital watches he had to wind

  4. Also I thought I saw The Who’s My Generation LP somewhere in Lincoln’s office somewhere. The lame 80s MCA re-issue, too.

  5. How about where Lincoln’s wearing a digital watch?

    And Mary Todd Lincoln’s got that wrist tattoo?

    And John Wilkes Booth posts on Tweeter after shooting Lincoln, “now he b longz to the agez lol!!!!”
