John and Yoko: A Love StoryGoofs

A scene of the "Let It Be" sessions shows John and Yoko waltzing to the unfinished track, while Paul and George argue over the last two notes of George's solo, leading to George's walking out of the studio. Waltzes are in 3:4 time; "Let It Be" is in 4:4, and the couple in real life danced to "I Me Mine" (written in 3:4). Paul and George's "last two notes" argument was over a break in "I've Got A Feeling", on another day.
John Lennon's spectacles did not fall to the ground when he was shot. They were deliberately removed from his face by Jay Hastings, the doorman who came to Lennon's aid.
The music played during John's alcoholic breakdown is "What You Got," which was recorded for the album Wallls And Bridges. Walls And Bridges was not recorded with Phil Spector in Los Angeles but back in New York City after Spector absconded with the master tapes for the Rock 'n' Roll album. While technically part of John's "lost weekend" the recording of Walls And Bridges went far more smoothly and professionally than the chaotic Spector sessions.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs
When John and Yoko are leading everyone in singing 'Give Peace a Chance' John is shown fingering a D chord on his guitar but the song is being played in E.
During the January 1969 scenes, Paul is shown listening with George his guitar solo on "Let it Be". That particular solo was recorded on January 1970, one year after the scene depicted.
Paul is shown with a mustache as late as mid-1968. In reality Paul shaved his mustache by the autumn of 1967 (he was clean-shaven for Magical Mystery Tour)
While recording Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, John invites Yoko to "Abbey Road Studios." The studios were known as EMI Studios until the 1970s, when they were renamed in honor of the Beatles album of the same name.
