Lady at Cricket Match:
Captain has put himself into bat first. Clive Durham would've never done that.
Maurice Hall: He is our best man apparently.
Wigmore Hall, where the boys meet in one scene, was known as Bechstein Hall until 1917. It was owned and operated by the German piano manufacturer Carl Bechstein & Sons. In1916 Britain seized German property in Britain. The hall was renamed Wigmore Hall on its reopening in 1917. So "Wigmore Hall" did not exist when the scene in the film (pre-war) takes place.
Some NTSC versions are scanned at 25fps and the running time is short and seems edited but the movie is intact.
