In The Bridges of Madison County, when Robert and Francesca are driving down the road for the first time they meet a tractor.
What's wrong with that scene?

This was posted on a movie forum where I post, but mostly read.
btw..I wouldn't know if he's right or wrong...

-"Being a native Iowa farm boy I spotted several slipups in this movie.
When the main characters are on their way to the bridge during the first outing they pass a farm tractor.
That tractor is clearly a late model John Deere with a modern "Comfort Cab" produced in the mid to late 80's.
Also on a few occasions in the back ground can be seen the large round hay bales, The machinery to produce those was invented in the mid 70's.
In one scene Francesca is seen coming into the drive way driving a John Deere 4020, Im pretty sure the date given for the timeline of the movie was 1963, 4020's were first produced in 1964"-

Movies, being fantasy, usually make a few mistakes. I can't remember the name of the movie, but recently one was set in Frazier's Bottom WV. The main character worked at a Piggly Wiggly food store there. I live 5 minutes from Frazier's Bottom, and there is only an antique store, a truck stop, and NO stoplights at all. There are no Piggly Wiggly stores in the entire state of WV. The movie was filmed somewhere else altogether. Nobody but natives would really know about this. There aren't enough of us to really care about. I understand it's a good movie if you are not distracted by the inaccuracies. Of course, it's all fantasy anyway, so who cares?

Hate to nitpick but the 4430 was produced from 1973 through 1977. The 40, 50 and 60 series were produced through the 80's and used the same cab style (known as the Sound Gard Body}, but the stripe on the side of the tractor was different.
I think the movie was set in 1965, which would make the 4020 correct.
But I know that area somewhat, and I have to say everything else was so accurate it was almost spooky!
