Chariots of FireGoofs
When Eric Liddell is in the locker room getting ready, before going over to wish Abrahams luck, the camera is in a close up on him. He walks past a row of showers and the man in the final stall is seen facing the camera and holding a towel. The angle then switches to a far away shot and the man is now naked, showering with his back to the camera.

Errors in geography
(at around 30 mins) Just before Abrams and Montague register at the Porters' Lodge of "Caius College, Cambridge 1919" their taxi is seen driving along a street and stopping at "the" College entrance. The street is Trinity Lane at the back of Caius College and the entrance is not that of Caius College but of Trinity Hall. Even the Trinity Hall crescent can be seen above the entrance.
In the first Cambridge scene, set in 1919, passengers are seen on the railway station's footbridge. In fact, pressure from 19th century Cambridge University leaders opposed to railways led to special conditions being imposed on the station before it was constructed, and one of these was that it must have no footbridges; although one was added later, it was demolished again in 1863 and since then the station has had level access to all platforms. In 2011 work began on a second platform which will be connected to the original platform by a pedestrian bridge.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs
In 1924, the future Edward VIII/Duke of Windsor was Prince of Wales. At the meeting between "the committee" and Eric Liddell, Lord Birkenhead calls him "David". Some have assumed that this is a goof because he is played by David Yelland, but in fact the prince was known to his friends and family as David, and it is coincidence that an actor with the same name plays him.
The five-striped flag of the Republic of China is shown flying next to the US flag in the stadium. Although Chinese athletes did not compete in the Olympics until 1932, the Chinese flag was in fact hoisted at the 1924 Olympics. Several Chinese athletes marched in the opening ceremony but did not compete.
At minute 57 in the movie, that takes place in the early twenties of XX century, when Eric Liddell is asked for an autograph he does not unscrew or remove any cap from the pen he uses. As all fountain pens have caps, he seems to be using a ballpoint pen because of a retractable tip type. Actually a patent for ball pen was only filed by László Bíró in UK in 1938.
