It's a Wonderful Life - It Doesn't Add Up
When they mention the incident where the little brother falls through the ice, they state his specific age at the time. Later, they say that he would have died if his older brother had not been there to save him. They show the grave to George, but the dates on the tombstone do not add up to the same number of years as the little brother's previously stated age.

If anyone would like the actual quote: "Your brother, Harry Bailey, broke through the ice and was drowned at the age of nine." The gravestone has 1911-1919 on it. There is no way he could have turned 9 yet. It is a true Slip-Up.

Well, Think about it this way. That could very well be true, They Never state his exact birth date. If he was born in the summer he would in fact be 9 at the time of his death, in the winter.

Clarence said "He died at 9", but the tombstone said 1911-1919, so Harry would've been 8, not 9.

Maybe they rounded up. He could have been over 8 1/2, so they were most accurate by saying that he was 9.

Actually, even though I don't remember the exact numbers, either, I have noticed this several times (usually once every X-mas). The age and the tombstone are off by more than just a year.

That's pretty vague. What, did read this in a book years ago? Would it kill you to present the actual numbers? Was it - for instance - off by one year, which could be explained by the timing of his birthday?

Maybe he meant 9 o'clock
