Schindler's List

Deliberate mistake: The movie shows events between 1939 and 1945 but the children look the same at the beginning and the end, they don't grow up. Pay attention to Danka Dresner, Adam Levy and Olek Rosner.

Continuity mistake: When Schindler is leaving the factory, at the end of the movie, he starts to sob "I could have saved more". Two women approach him from the left side and hug him. When the angle changes the women are back behind and repeat the whole movement again.

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."

Trivia: Director Steven Spielberg refused to accept any money for the film because he thought it would be inappropriate. He had no salary, and he diverted any money on the back end that would have gone to him to the Shoah Foundation, which records testimonies of the survivors of genocide.
