Only 29?!?

Fans Find 29 Mistakes in ‘Gangs of New York’
HOLLYWOOD ( – Maybe Martin Scorsese should re-title “Gangs of New York” as “Gangs of Historical Inaccuracies.”
The website has found 29 mistakes in the horrible, yet Oscar nominated, film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Daniel Day-Lewis.
One of the biggest mistakes involves the Brooklyn Bridge. Near the end of the film a scene set in 1863, the bridge is shown in the background. The bridge wasn’t constructed until 1870.
In another scene, the American flag has 50 stars, long before the country had 50 states. Also, in one scene, bananas can clearly be seen on the floor — even though they weren’t introduced in America until 20 to 30 years later. Other mistakes include guns that disappear, facial cuts mysteriously switching cheeks and a draft riot lasting four days when in reality it only lasted three.
In addition, inaccuracies in the film’s make-up, which includes hair styles, may have contributed to the film not being considered for an Oscar nod in the category. However, the film is relatively error-free compared to last year’s “Spider-Man,” in which fans found 150 mistakes, or “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers,” which has 145 errors listed. Topping the list of the film to have the most mistakes is “Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” which has 206 errors.
