Crossroads - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: When Easy is paddling across the river to aid the British soldiers, there is a shot where the person closest to the camera (Bull Randleman) appears to be rowing, but there is nothing in his hands.

Crossroads - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the men are in the barn. Notice Luz eating. In one shot he is chewing and moving his mouth with sound, then in the next shot, his mouth isn't moving at all yet the chewing sound is still audible. (00:00:55)

Crossroads - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In part 5 when Easy company surprises the two sleeping German companies, with Winters leading the charge. Winters crosses the berm and a sleeping German stands up, and gets shot. Winters then shoots off 9 more rounds (2 too many), then reloads, drops to one knee and only shoots 6 rounds (2 too few), and in both cases the clip ejects as if it were a normal 8 round firing sequence.

Crossroads - S1-E5

Factual error: In the Battalion HQ, British colonel Dobie is seen wearing an American jacket with the 101st divisional patch on the upper left arm. He is also wearing an American issue belt with canteen and sidearm holster. (00:06:05)

Suggested correction: His clothes hadn't dried yet after swimming through a river to reach the US line. So the Yanks gave him their clothes to wear instead.

Guarnere: Jesus Christ, we gotta do all this with a C.O. who has his head so far up his fuckin' ass, that lump in his throat is his goddamn nose.

Trivia: In the scene where the Red Devils toast the 101st Airborne, when the camera shows the assembled soldiers you'll see Tom Hanks as one of the Red Devils in a beret at the back left (5 or 6 men in) with his right hand on his hip. His head moves forwards to become obscured behind another soldier. (00:30:30)

Crossroads - S1-E5

Question: How exactly do the M1 Garands work? I noticed that after the clip is emptied a metal type plate comes out the top of the rifle, what is that?

Answer: That actually is the clip. It is loaded into the top of the rifle, and is ejected with the last round. See
