Revealing mistake: On the morning of Bentley's hanging, his father walks into the street and meets the postman. The camera then pulls back to show a streetscape. The gulleys are full of Autumn leaves whereas Bentley was hanged on January 28th. The leaves are there to conceal double yellow lines (which were not introduced in England until February 1956) and in several places they can be seen showing through.
