Other mistake: The film is set in 1931. One of the characters uses the phrase "plenty of nutting." This phrase comes from the song composed three years later in 1934 for the musical Porgy and Bess.
Factual error: When Sally and Bryan are in the street, we can see, at their back, election posters. These posters appeared in 1932, one year after the movie is supposed to take place.
Brian Roberts: How's the, uh, gigolo campaign going?
Fritz Wendel: Terrible. This week, already I'm giving up three dinner invitations to spend thirty-two marks on her.
Brian Roberts: That's quite a sacrifice.
Fritz Wendel: And here's the craziness: I like it. God damn it.
Brian Roberts: What?
Fritz Wendel: I think I'm falling in love with her.
Brian Roberts: Oh, I'm so sorry.
Fritz Wendel: So am I.
Trivia: "Cabaret" holds the record for most Academy Awards won by a film which did not win the Best Picture Award. The film won eight in total.
