Quadrophenia

Factual error: In the scene where Jimmy and Steph are outside the cafe following the fight, the police arrive and they both run away. A modern pedestrian crossing button can be seen.

Factual error: The station scene shows a Class 50 Locomotive which did not work from Victoria. Looks more like Paddington Station. Victoria is the main station for the Brighton line.

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy meets his old school pal Kevin Herriot at the public baths, Kevin's hair is quite short, but in the cafe after his bath his hair is long and bushy in a DA style.

Factual error: Many extras in the background of the fight scene are wearing late 70's clothes.
