The Blue Max

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Jeremy Kemp and George Peppard are playing daredevil in their planes and Kemp's plane hits a brick tower there is a shot of the plane plummeting to the ground. The alert viewer can see the shiny metal wires that were used to support and guide the plane on its way to the ground.

Continuity mistake: The film is set on the Western Front during WWI but was filmed in Ireland in 1965. As George Peppard is driving to join his squadron for the first time the camera pans the horizon and loads of houses can be seen to have TV aerials.

Factual error: The British carry WW-I, No 1 Lee-Enfields, and the Germans carry WW-II era British No. 4 Lee-Enfields.

Trivia: The number of the Berlin hotel room Bruno Stachel stays in the night before he is to be awarded the Blue Max is '22', which equals the number of planes he has shot down. He needed only 20 to win the award, but he had to shoot down two more in order to make up for Willy's kills that he claimed as his own earlier in the film.
