Anachronisms 

The characters of Ernest Hemingway and Ed Myers are wearing Ray Ban sunglasses with the logo on the lens. Ray Bans did not put logos on the lenses until 1982.

An hour into the film, Ed gets into a cab. When he closes the door you can clearly see a NO SMOKING symbol on the car's window, a symbol that was not used until decades later when smoking bans came into effect.

When a gramophone is shown playing 'Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien' by Edith Piaf, a little over 35 minutes into the movie, a close-up of the record player reveals Russian characters along with numbers above the stylus (the Cyrillic equivalent of "GZM, 205D").

The rotary dial phones are correct, but the twirl cords did not appear in Cuba until later in the '60s.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

The Lockheed Constellation had four huge 3,500 HP Pratt & Whitney Turbo Compound engines. I don't think the engine sound dubbed into the stock footage of the TWA Constellation landing is correct. It is not the deep growl that I remember from these classic airliners.

Factual errors 

While in Cuba before the successful 1959 revolution, Hemingway is quoted as saying "ever since J.Edgar Hoover died" they were trying to "get him". Hoover died in 1972, much later than the Cuban Revolution.
