Trivia

Jennifer Ehle played Elizabeth Bennet to Colin Firth's Mr. Darcy in Pride and Prejudice (1995). At the time, the two were briefly in a relationship. David Bamber, who played Collins in Pride and Prejudice (1995), also appears here in a very small role, sharing no scenes with either Firth or Ehle.


Quotes

Title Card: 1925 / King George V reigns over a quarter of the world's people. He asks his second son, the Duke of York, to give the closing speech at the Empire Exhibition in Wembley, London.


Goofs

When the newsreel about the 1937 Coronation ends, it is immediately followed by a report of a big outdoor Nazi rally with Adolf Hitler taking the salute, then footage of Hitler addressing an audience indoors. The second Hitler scene is from 1932-3, when he was still trying to appeal for votes. One scene shows SA leader Ernst Röhm, who was disowned and executed in 1934, with all public display of his image banned in Germany.


Crazy Credits

In the end credit roll, Philip Clements is listed twice as Assistant Sound Editor.
