During one of the final scenes, Sonar operator Queffle arrives on the ship's bridge in a state of shock and exhaustion. The medical officer is called to examine him. The doctor quickly checks Queffle's eyeballs, apparently to view the condition of his pupils. But he performs this exam with Queffle's eyeglasses still in place. The glasses would have distorted the doctors view of the pupils somewhat, possibly resulting in an incorrect diagnosis.
Crew or equipment visible
Photojournalist Poiter is shown with both Nikon & Pentax 35mm cameras around his neck at the same time. A real photographer might use two cameras with different angle lens but he would not use cameras with mutually exclusive mounting systems, in this case bayonet & screw mount. This would prevent lens interchangeability on the two camera bodies and flexibility with any additional lens available.
Towards the film's end, when scenes throughout the ship are being shown, a rack of rifles are shown somewhere in the ship. The distinctive front sight of the rifles show them to be Lee Enfield No.4 Mk.1/2, a British weapon. American ships of that time would have had M-1 Garands or M-14s in their small arms room.
