The Grand Hotel of the Universe has a warning that it was "Out of Bounds" to British personnel. There is also a sign to say that it was "Off Limits" to U.S. Forces. As this is set in 1941, there wouldn't have been any U.S. Forces until November 1942.
During the shelling of the French town, smoke from the explosions goes behind the matte painting of the tops of the background buildings, leaving them apparently suspended in mid-air.
Opening credits prologue: During World War II, ENSA brought entertainment to our troops in every theatre of war under conditions that were usually difficult, and often dangerous.
Those who brought this entertainment included international stars, great actors, top-ranking comedians, glamorous figures of the screen . . .
. . . and others!
But to them all - the long, and the short, and the terrible - this film is affectionately dedicated.
