Factual error: In the opening scene, the German soldiers are searching the Americans. They remove a package of Lucky Strike cigarettes from one of the Americans. This package has the red circle against the green background. Green ink was stopped in 1942 because it uses chromium for green pigment which was necessary for war production of steel. Slogan "Lucky Strike Greens Has Gone to War" was a big advertisement in 1942 with introduction of white background on package.
Continuity mistake: In a party scene about 45 minutes into the movie there are numerous shots of the crowd. Over a several minute period one character was shown in at least four shots while smoking a cigarette in a cigarette holder. In all shots the partially smoked cigarette is the exact same length. Either they kept using the same clip or the cigarette was not lit.Wayne C.
