The coal mine in a northern English village may be closing, which would also mean the end of the miners' brass band.
The fish-and-chip restaurant where Andy takes Gloria when they decide to "go posh" is called "In Cod We Trust".
I'll have you know, that girl blows a flugel like a dream.
Vera: Ohhh, Danny Ormondroyd. At your age.
When Gloria is playing the Concerto de Aranjuez, the second measure after the Flugelhorn comes in, she plays a note with the second valve that should be played with the first valve. The written note is a B-flat for Flugelhorn (concert A-Flat). Playing with the second valve would produce a B natural, a half step higher.
On some prints, the words "The End" remain onscreen as three additional lines of "definitions" are added one by one underneath: n. 1. closure (as in 140 pits since 1984) 2. termination (as in 250,000 jobs) 3. conclusion (as in draw your own...)
The British release does not have the dictionary definitions at the start or end of the film. These were added to the American release to introduce the US audience to British slang. The end of the film has the same information, but just as normal text.
