  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): When Lily and Rosaleen are drinking their Cokes on the grass outside the Boatwright house, you see Rosaleen drink the last of the soda, but you can clearly hear the liquid flowing back into the bottle.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The action in the movie took place in July, 1964. When we first meet Zach, he is singing The Four Tops' "Baby, I Need Your Loving," which was not released until August 15, 1964. A few scenes later, the characters are listening to The Supremes' "Come See About Me," which was not released until November, 1964.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): In the scene where Rosaleen and Lily walks down the dirt road to go to town, Lily wears shorts but when they get into town she is wearing longer pants. And also in the next seen where Lily is in the bedroom with her father she is back to wearing shorts again.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): The story takes place in 1964. Throughout the story, June wears a silk-screen NAACP t-shirt. Silk-screened t-shirts did not exist until the issuance of a patent for the garment screen printing machine in 1969.
