At the end of the movie, Marshall is shown dropping some coins into a pay phone in Mississippi to call Friedman in Connecticut to see what the verdict in the case was. Although that's how it would have happened 20 or 30 years later, in 1941, it would have involved first calling Central, who would have than called a hub which would have established a trunk line to New York City, and so on.

I thought the script was flawed and shallow. One dimensional cliché of a truly great subject. Thurgood Marshall was given short shrift. We need more than a one dimensional caricature to make a movie. Doesn't pass the sniff test. In short this was a quick movie-factory production-line job, as it were. Why? Is it because October is low season?
