Corrected entry: Jamie is captured and put in a prison camp in early 1942, yet he has no problem recognizing and knowing the name of the P-51 Mustang plane, which was only even introduced into USAF later that year, and didn't arrive in China until 1943-44.
Trivia: When Jim returns home after losing his parents, his nanny slaps him. The actors had practiced a fake slap and fake reaction, but Spielberg and the actress playing the nanny conspired to make the slap real when the cameras were rolling, so Christian Bale's reaction would be genuine. Therefore, Bale is really being slapped, and his shocked reaction is no act.
