Goofs

Stanley Baldwin is depicted as resigning as Prime Minister on a point of principle, because he has misjudged Adolf Hitler. In fact Baldwin retired from the Premiership of his own free will, the day after King George VI's Coronation in 1937. Hitler had not yet even begun his campaigns of invasion and treaty-breaking at that time.


Crazy Credits

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