Darkest Hour

Factual error: The underground station shown is not St. James Park, which would be 1 stop east on the District line. St. James Park has green and yellow tiles on the wall indicating District and Circle lines. The platform in the film has black and brown tiles, indicating Northern and Bakerloo lines, neither of which serve St. James Park.

Crusoe

Factual error: Neville Chamberlain is described as chairman of the Conservative Party. He was actually party leader. Party chairman is a separate post, which was held at that time by Sir Douglas Hacking.

Necrothesp

Factual error: Churchill is frequently shown drinking from Waterford Crystal initially in the first scene when he drinks whisky with breakfast. The ‘Lismore' style shown was not introduced until 1952.

More quotes from Darkest Hour


Question: In the 'War Room' scene, there appeared to be a sheet of plastic or acetate covering the wall with the map of the enemy's movements. Was that premature for plastic to be available in that size for that time frame?

Myke

Answer: It may be polyethylene, which was in wide use by the 1930s. Other plastics were also available at that time.
