The Heroes of Telemark

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Richard Harris and Kirk Douglas parachute back into Norway, there is a white parachute blowing in the wind. Kirk Douglas goes to collect it, but there are footprints already in the snow where they have previously filmed a retake. (00:27:00)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie in the scene where the German convoy is driving down the mountainside the Colonel (Terboven) is sitting in the left seat of the Mercedes, after the scene where the Germans are stopped by the huge bolder, he gets out of the left side door, he shouts orders to Frick, the convoy then continues down the road, shortly after the credits roll in a continued scene the camera shows him sitting in the right side seat. (00:01:00 - 00:04:40)

Factual error: The daylight air-raid on the Norwegian Heavy Water plant in 1942 was done by Boeing B17G bombers, with the distinctive chin gun turrets. These planes did not come into service until 1944, when they were introduced to counter the head-on attacks by German fighters.
