Corrected entry: When Gregory Peck and Anthony Quayle are piloting the boat through the storm, they're talking about the other team members. Peck says "I think our friend Baker has some explaining to do." The actor who played the "Butcher of Barcelona" was Stanley Baker, while his character's last name in the movie was Brown.JohnLHolmes
Corrected entry: It is typical for English-speaking actors trying to speak German, but still noticeable: With his thick accent, speech rhythm and choice of words in his 'perfect German' ("Meine Uhr muß zu langsam gehen" - 'My watch must be going too slow'; in German you would say:"Meine Uhr geht wohl nach"), Mallory would have had his crew caught much faster than he could say 'Hey.'
Corrected entry: When Gregory Peck, David Niven, and Irene Pappas steal a German army truck while disguised in German uniforms and drive to the Navarone gun barracks to destroy them, the German truck is right hand drive. WWII German military vehicles were left hand drive. Only British vehicles would have right hand drive.
Corrected entry: In the scene near the beginning of the movie, just after the team gets to the top of the cliff, the German soldiers are put on alert and head out to the cliff. As they leave the compound, one of the German trucks proudly displays the "Dodge" name on the tailgate. An American vehicle with German decals.
