Day of the Triffids (1962)

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film when the hero wakes up blindfolded after a night's sleep he is clean shaven.

Correction: Once upon a time, nurses use to do the sorts of helpful things like shaving patients, hair cuts etc., and he had been bandaged up for considerably more than just one night prior to the meteor shower - it was only the absence of medical care that meant he risked removing the bandages to find out what was going on.

Factual error: The geography of London is all wrong. When Howard Keel leaves the Eye Hospital (in Kings Cross) he turns a corner and ends up in Lincoln's Inn Fields (where he sees a dog being killed by a Triffid), he then exits the park and ends up in Victoria Train Station. All these locations are several miles apart.

Suggested correction: The station appeared to be Marylebone rather than Victoria, which would have placed him even further away from where he needed to be (Waterloo). Also, he then takes an abandoned car on the south side of Westminster bridge and a few moments later is driving with St Pauls in the background. Completely the wrong direction.
