The song "You Made Me Love You" was first published in 1913, however when Richard first awakens in 1912 and finds himself in a stranger's room, the occupant of the room can be heard singing this song.

An American flag flying from the Grand Hotel in 1912 has 50 stars. In 1912 it should have 46 stars (early in the year), or 48 stars (after 4 July).
