Anachronisms 

In January 1922, Franklin D. Roosevelt says Anna Eleanor Roosevelt loves reading about the Teapot Dome scandal. Teapot Dome did not become public news until the latter half of 1923.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When the train departs to carry the Roosevelt family home from Campobello, there's a shot of the departing locomotive accompanied by typical steam-locomotive-starting-up sounds which are not paced or synchronized with the actual operation of the steam engine.

Factual errors 

No competent orthopedist would have given Franklin D. Roosevelt crutches so short that he would have to lean forward and use them to walk on all fours, as Ralph Bellamy does. (Besides, the paralysis would have kept him from moving his legs.) Crutches should be long enough so that the user can stand up straight, support his weight on them and propel himself forward with his shoulder muscles.
