Revealing mistake: In the scene where Lancelot runs into and fights Arthur's ambushers, he runs one of them through with his sword. It is visible that he stabs his opponent past the body, but close enough for the appearance.

Factual error: If we are to assume that the British cruisers were Dido class with 5.25" guns, the assertion that the Essen would outrange them by 5000 yards is pretty much true. However, in order for the Brits to launch torpedoes, they would have had to close to inside of 20K yards, well within range of their main guns. Thus said, if the British cruisers were any of their 6 inch gun class, there would have been no advantage in range.

Visible crew/equipment: John Payne leaves a theater after getting into a fight after being tricked by actress friend Evelyn Keyes during an audition. As he walks out the backstage to the back entrance, the shadow of a crew member (possibly the camera operator) can be seen on the wall as Payne passes by.
