The 1944 Spanish copies of Snow White bear the title "Blanco Nieves y los Siete Enanos". The actual Spanish translation of Snow White is "Blancanieves", with no separation and the female termination -a instead of the male -o. Also, in Spain the tale is known as "Blancanieves y los Siete Enanitos" (Snow White and the Seven Little Dwarfs) while "Blancanieves y los Siete Enanos" is used in Latin America.

There could not be American WW2 bonds issued to finance the "Spanish underground fighting against the Axis" because the Axis never invaded Spain during WW2. In fact, the Franco dictatorship ruling Spain during the war was sympathetic to the Axis and collaborated with it. While there was an underground fighting the Franco dictatorship, it was never supported or financed by the USA.

Miscellaneous 

When Neal is leaving prison at the beginning, the closed caption shows that Break On Through by the Doors should be playing, but what is playing is Hold On I'm Coming by Sam and Dave.

You can see the adhesive tape that is holding the fake mustache on. You catch a glimpse during the first 30 seconds while Neal is shaving.

Plot holes 

The surviving victory bonds are said to have been printed in Madrid and then hidden in Cantabria's Altamira caves. Since Cantabria is located on the northern coast of Spain and Madrid is in its center, this would only make sense if the Axis invasion of Spain was launched from the south rather than from Occupied France in the North (ignoring that the Axis never invaded Spain in real life).

Revealing mistakes 

In the opening scene when Neal Caffrey is snipping off his facial hair in a toilet stall, the adhesive-strip base of the stick-on beard is clearly visible. It happens twice - when there is a shot from the side of his upper lip, mouth, cheek and chin (immediately before the close-up of his eye) and when there is a shot from the front of his lips and chin (immediately after the shot of snipped-off hair falling on the water). Both happen within the first twenty seconds, and only seven seconds apart. In the second instance, the edge of the adhesive strip even appears to be partly peeled off.
