The movie is set in 1850, and in the early scenes (probably in
Pennsylvania with the Amish community) there are barbed wire fences lining the roads. Barbed wire wasn't invented until 1873 (earlier versions might have been available but were not mass produced and certainly not for that long of a stretch) and was intended mainly for the western United States, not the eastern half.

One of the best "feel-good" movies I have ever seen. I once heard Gene Wilder say that he got the Rabbi's accent from his grandfather, and I can believe it!
A few weeks ago, my husband and I were channel surfing in the middle of the night, and came across the movie, dubbed in Spanish. We ended up staying awake until the wee hours of the morning, just to watch this gem.
A gentle film, not afraid to show a love of religion and of friendship, I wish that more movies were like this.
