Lothar G. Buchheim was incensed when he first saw the scene of one crew member dancing like some sort of tropical girl while the rest of the crew shouted out catcalls and wolf whistles. He said that no U-boat crew would ever behave in such a way.
Captain of the 'Weser':
So, what's it like down there, in a submarine?
Der Leitende: It's... quiet.
Captain of the 'Weser': Quiet? Hmm.
During the start of the film the all footage of the submarine show that is was armed with a 8.8 cm SK C/30 naval deck gun and a 2 cm FlaK 30 AA gun on the deck. In the final footage of the submarine returning to France whilst the crew is singing it is missing both guns, presumably stock footage of another U-boat or an incorrectly made model.
