Oskar Schindler: They won't soon forget the name "Oskar Schindler" around here. "Oskar Schindler," they'll say, "everybody remembers him. He did something extraordinary. He did what no one else did. He came with nothing, a suitcase, and built a bankrupt company into a major manufactory. And left with a steamer trunk, two steamer trunks, of money. All the riches of the world."
In the opening scenes at the nightclub when Oscar is treating his new friends to dinner, they are singing "The Happy Wanderer" ("Der Fröhliche Wanderer"). This song was written by Friedrich-Wilhelm Moller shortly after WWII. The nightclub scene was supposed to have taken place in 1939. See more...
During filming, Steven Spielberg once stated, 'SS marksmen, for fun, would throw babies in the air and shoot them like skeet. I wouldn't do that, even with dolls' (on why he would not film such a scene). See more...

The entry you are correcting is:
|Original entry||When Ben Kingsley is mistakenly forced onto a train and Liam Neeson arrives at the last minute to retrieve him, a clerk tells the conductor to stop the train. When the clerk walks back to Neeson with his clipboard, he walks from the direction of the back of the train, the end that would enter the station upon arrival. The train is leaving however, which means he should run up from the other side. [It is possible that the station had only a one way track, and once the train pulls in, the only way it could get out is to back out of the station and down the tracks to a switching station. The movie Escape from Sobibor's train station is like that, it is blocked off so the train can come into the station and only back out.]|
