Goofs

Despite what this series purports, Henry Willson was never elevated to film producer. The closest he came was Rock Hudson, at the peak of his stardom, awarding Willson a token associate producer credit on Come September (1961). See more »

A younger generation's wish for how things could have been, rather than the sickening way it actually was. It's not meant to be any kind of historically accurate piece & most will know that this was too good to be true... but be moved by it anyway. Those complaining about its progressive message or its lack of accuracy have thoughts that are better kept to history, too. Lighten up. It's a wonderful piece of fiction. Another hit from Ryan Murphy & company. I'm in awe at the dramatic and comedic beats they always manage to put into each of their shows, some of the best Tv there is. I truly look up to these makers.
