Dorothy Rodgers in the film tells Lorenz Hart about 'doing a play with Gene Kelly,' implying that Kelly was already an established stage star by the early 40s. In reality, Kelly was relatively unknown when he was cast in Rodgers and Hart's show 'Pal Joey,' which would also be his only leading role in a Broadway show before going into films.
Peggy Lorgan McNeil:
I don't think I quite understand.
Lorenz 'Larry' Hart: You will after you've known me ten or fifteen years.
After he is rejected by Joyce Harmon, Richard Rodgers attends a showing of Camille (1936). This event is shown as taking place prior to the Broadway premiere of _A Connecticut Yankee_, even though the film was released in 1936 and the premiere of _A Connecticut Yankee_ took place in 1927. The clip from "Camille" is shown as if the picture were a silent film, when in fact "Camille" was (and is) one of Garbo's most celebrated talking pictures.
