The Blue Max

The Blue Max (1966)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: At the end of the 'bridge' sequence in which Bruno and Willy attempt to outfly each other, Willy's plane strikes a stone tower beyond the bridge and crashes in open ground. In the next scene, where Bruno is confronted by his commanding officer as to the circumstances of Willy's death, Bruno responds that he 'flew into the trees.'

Correction: Bruno was obviously deliberately lying in order to conceal the true facts of Willy's death, ie. that they were trying to outfly one another.

Mistakes

The movie concludes with George Peppard crashing a test monoplane. The shot is from James Mason's office, looking out over the airfield. We hear the sound of the diving plane, but do not see it. After the camera has been focused on the field for a few seconds, we see a large explosion, which is meant to represent the crashing plane. The falling plane is missing. From the position of the shot, we should have seen the crashing plane.

Trivia

The number of the Berlin hotel room Bruno Stachel stays in the night before he is to be awarded the Blue Max is '22', which equals the number of planes he has shot down. He needed only 20 to win the award, but he had to shoot down two more in order to make up for Willy's kills that he claimed as his own earlier in the film.
