Anachronisms:: The orphans get to watch the movie King Kong (1933) with a certain scene intact (the giant ape peels off Ann Darrow's garments). That scene was cut from Kong shortly after its premiere and was not publicly available anywhere (until 1971), so whoever lived in 1940s Maine could only see the cut version of Kong.

The scenes at the drive-in feature a full cinemascope sized screen. Cinemascope was not available until 1953.
