Factual Mistake
When the communists' phone call to Eddie Mannix is disconnected on the first attempt we hear a burst of "precise dial tone," the same as today. This was not used until more than 10 years later. At that time the standard dial tone was 600 Hz modulated at 120 Hz

When the cucumber sandwiches are being prepared in the kitchen for the communist study group, they are shown as having the crusts cut off in thin slices. When they are served to Baird Whitlock, they are cut into squares, without crusts

Revealing Mistakes
The watch that can be seen on Mannix's wrist in medium shots is not the same watch shown in the insert shots when he is checking the time. One has straight sides, while the other is wider across the middle

Audio/Video Mismatch
In Baird Whitlock's final speech, his ruffled collar is alternately tucked into his armor from one angle and standing straight up from other angles

The Romans speak of a "Frankish road", but the Franks did not become part of the Roman world until centuries later

Factual Mistake
In 1951, Chinese restaurants that catered to Westerners did not set chopsticks out on the table as part of the standard place setting

The soy sauce bottle on the table in the Chinese restaurant was not designed by Kenji Ekuan until 1961, ten years after Hail, Caesar! takes place

When Hobie is picking up Carlotta for their date, a car turning right onto the avenue down the hill is briefly visible. It is white and a modern vehicle, a small SUV make

Audio/Video Mismatch
Mannix's much-loved wristwatch is often-looked upon and is octagon-shaped in close-ups, but in long shots, the actor is wearing a rectangle-shaped watch.

The wristwatch Josh Brolin;s character wears changes between close-up shots, when it is hexagonally shaped, and long shots, when it is rectangular.

Errors in Geography
The beach-side house where Baird is being held for ransom has a close-up view of Santa Catalina Island. The film alludes that it is in Malibu, but that is too far from Catalina to have such a view.

Factual Mistake
The Lockheed recruiter shows Eddie a picture of the Bikini Atoll nuclear test. The picture he shows is of a ground explosion (dust being thrown in the air), not an ocean explosion.

Revealing Mistakes
When Channing Tatum's character leaves on the Russian sub, it is clearly a nuclear powered sub. Russia did not commission it's first nuclear powered sub until 1961, a full 10 years after this movie takes place. As a matter of fact, the USS Nautilus wasn't commissioned until 1954, 3 years after this movie takes place.
This is the fifth movie featuring Ralph Fiennes and Michael Gambon, they previously appeared together in four of the Harry Potter films series, however in this film Michael Gambon doesn't appear on screen, only narrates

This is George Clooney's fourth film collaboration with Joel Coen and Ethan Coen

George Clooney was actually slapped by Josh Brolin several times. His reaction shown in the film was genuine.

The fictional film studio "Capitol Pictures" previously appeared in Barton Fink (1991), another Los Angeles period film from the Coen Brothers.

This film will mark Frances McDormand's eighth collaboration with the Coen brothers. Frances is also the wife of Joel Coen.

Carlotta Valdes, Hobie Doyle's date, is also the name of a mysterious character from the 1800s in Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 movie Vertigo.

Selected as the opening film of the 2016 Berlin Film Festival.

This is Josh Brolin's third film collaboration with Joel Coen and Ethan Coen. They previously worked together on No Country for Old Men (2007) and True Grit (2010).

While Hobie is having dinner with Carlotta, he starts using a spaghetti noodle as a lasso to entertain her. This is a nod to spaghetti westerns.

Bob Hoskins portrayed Mannix in the 2006 biographical film "Hollywoodland," based on the life and death of actor George Reeves.
