(1998) did 19 years prior to that. See more
When Miguel returns to the Land of the Living at sunrise, the doors to Ernesto's tomb are sitting open to allow him out, despite the fact that they were closed and locked earlier in the film. The guitar being on the floor proves that no one entered while Miguel was gone - otherwise, they would have returned it to its spot on the wall. See more

I demand to speak to the person in charge.
Sorry, señora it says here no one put up your photo.
My family always, ALWAYS puts my photo on the ofrenda
[pulls off her shoe and begins beating the computer
That devil box tells you nothing but lies.

Oh, mi familia! They wouldn't let me cross the bridge.
[Puts her shoe back on
Tell this woman and her devil box that my photo is on the ofrenda.
