Goofs

In the film Otto Remer arrives to arrest Goebbels unannounced. Goebbels places a cyanide capsule in his mouth and hands Remer the phone hoping he will speak to Hitler to confirm Hitler is still alive. One assumes that Goebbels intends to bite the capsule should Remer decide to arrest Goebbels. This is not what occurred. Remer issued the orders to secure Berlin as per the implementation of Operation Valkyrie but realised that something was wrong. Remer immediately telephoned Joseph Goebbels and discussed the matter with him. He was then invited to visit Goebbels whereupon Goebbels arranged telephone contact with the Wolfs Lair and Remer was allowed to confirm that Adolf Hitler was still alive.
