Continuity mistake: After Rita and Eddie's fridge is repossessed they are arguing outside their flat. On the wall outside their neighbours' flat there is a wheeled trolley or pushchair hanging on the wall. This disappears and then reappears several times during this sequence of the film.


Factual error: Rita says that George was a gunner in the RAF during the war. The photograph of him in uniform in his and Connie's house shows him wearing a (double wing) pilot's brevet instead of the single wing of an air gunner.


Factual error: When the factory comes to a stand still during the strike the cars on the production line are Ford Cortina mark 1s, which went out of production in 1966, two years before this film is set.

Factual error: Desmond Decker's record "the Israelite's" is heard on the radio. This record was issued in 1969, the year after this film is set.

Factual error: A triumph Toledo is parked outside the hotel - these cars did not start production until 1970, two years after this film is set.

Continuity mistake: When Rita and their friends come out in front of the press after the meeting with the Secretary of State, Lady Castle joins them. First they are seen in front with Lady Castle standing between Rita and Connie. Next cut they are seen from the back and Lady Castle stands between Connie and Brenda, once removed from Rita. Another cut, front again and everything back to normal.

Lisa Hopkins: I'm Lisa Hopkins, I'm 31 years old and I have a first class honours degree from one of the finest universities in the world, and my husband treats me like I'm a fool.
