Continuity mistake: In the part when the two American officers are looking around in Anchorage, USA, and come across the dead woman at the News Studios you can clearly see her blink 2 or 3 times as the camera pans out.
... "This is the way the world ends Not with a bang but a whimper." The last of humanity all die. Either by radiation poisoning or hopefully by the suicide pills issued by the government. Captain Towers sails away to ditch his nuclear sub while Moira watches him from a hilltop. The last scene shows a Salvation Army banner, the message now directed at the movie audience: "THERE'S STILL TIME BROTHER"
Adm. Bridie: Would you have a glass of sherry - with an old man?
Lt. Hosgood (Bridie's secretary): No, sir. But, I would very much like to have one with you, sir.
Trivia: When Moira and Bill Davidson are strolling in the pasture, they pause to admire a beautiful mare that is posing for them, and Bill offers the horse something to eat from the palm of his hand (sugar cubes or some other treat, presumably, but it's not visible). However, the horse does not react to the treat nor eat anything that Bill offers, because the actor's hand was actually empty. The trained horse was obeying cues from her trainer, off-camera, and only her trainer carried the real treats.
