Yanks (1979)

1 corrected entry

(2 votes)

Corrected entry: In one scene a Yank is riding in a train through the English countryside during WWII. Through the train window can be seen nuclear power plant cooling towers - obviously not a part of the landscape at that time.

Correction: The smoke towers that look like they belong to a nuclear power plant to Americans, are actually coal burning. They are common in the UK where the film was shot and present at the time of WWII and before.

Factual error: When they visit "Ireland", presumably the Irish Air Corps aerodrome in Dublin at the time of WWII, all of the staff in the bar at the aerodrome are American servicemen, in neutral Ireland.
