Goofs

The Birmingham Church Bombing of 1963 happened in September and Hall, Cagle and Robert Chambliss were arrested September 30 but the World Series was playing October 2nd to 7th. That puts the scene with McMurphy listening to the news and watching the nurses being escorted by Turkle out of sequence.
