Inglourious Basterds

Character mistake: Hicox salutes General Fenech, who returns the salute. But Fenech is bareheaded and therefore under British military protocol cannot salute. He would instead acknowledge the salute with a nod.

Character mistake: Hicox uses the word "momentarily" in the American sense of "in a moment". In British English it means only "for a moment". An educated Englishman in the 1940s would never have used the word in the American sense.

As the whole scene deals with exposing the British/American spies and subtle differences in their language or behaviour, this is especially unfavorable here.
