Errors in geography 

Although several sequences were indeed filmed in Phoenix AZ involving 1956 rodeo and rodeo parade, non-rodeo scenes supposedly depicting downtown Phoenix and Cherie's boardinghouse were clearly shot elsewhere - no major thoroughfare in Phoenix has hilly terrain or Victorian style buildings seen in film.

Cheri is repeatedly said to be from the Ozark Mountains, yet her map showing her "direction of life" begins in southwest Arkansas, at least 100 miles south of the southernmost part of the Ozarks.

Factual errors 

The camera lens that the Life photographer uses at the rodeo is too short a focal length for this sporting event. In addition, a mono-pod or tripod would have typically been used with a long lens for sports photography.
