Factual error: Jan Christiaan Smuts is referred to as the Prime Minister of the Union of South Africa in this film when Gandhi is there. Smuts didn't gain the office until 1919, after the death of Prime Minister Louis Botha. Gandhi left South Africa in 1914 and never returned.
Continuity mistake: The woman reporter was walking behind Gandhi at the beginning of the movie. At the end, in the "repeat," she wasn't.
Brigadier: You don't think we're just going to walk out of India.
Gandhi: Yes. In the end, you will walk out. Because 100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.
Gandhi: You're a temptress.
Margaret Bourke-White: Just an admirer.
Gandhi: Nothing is more dangerous, especially for an old man.
Gandhi: An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.
Question: What reason did the British general give for having opened fire on the unarmed crowd?
