Band of Brothers (2001)

4 corrected entries in The Patrol

The Patrol - S1-E8

Corrected entry: During the "prisoner snatch" patrol, as the American soldiers are preparing to cross the river with the German prisoners, a firefight ensues. Immediately after Lt. Jones picks up the whistle off the ground, someone is heard yelling, "Go!" and a bit more which I was unable to understand. It sounds a lot like Tom Hanks, whose voice is quite distinguishable. None of the other soldiers on that particular patrol had that voice.

Correction: I looked at the scene and while it does sound very much like Tom Hanks there is no way to know conclusively this is Tom Hanks. The reason I think it sounds familiar is the actor that says Go is none other than Tom Hanks' son Colin Hanks, who sounds somewhat similar to his father.

The Patrol - S1-E8

Corrected entry: When Webster reports back to Easy Company, he asks about Sgt. Malarkey. Someone tells him that Malarkey was being made a Lieutenant and that he's on the "fast track." However, Sgt. Lipton was the noncom promoted to Second Lieutenant. Malarkey remained a sergeant.

Correction: That was part of the plot - not a mistake. It plays out later when Lt. Jones sees Malarky and congratulates him for the promotion. Malarky comments that he must mean Lipton.

Correction: Try watching a bit closer. In practically the next scene, Lt Jones congratulates Malarkey on his promotion, only to be corrected. Clearly an example of a character mistake, and an intentionally scripted one at that.

The Patrol - S1-E8

Corrected entry: In 'The Last Patrol', Webster is chosen to go on the patrol because he can speak German. In the next episode, 'Why We Fight', when he pulls a gun on the German baker, another soldier has to translate for him.

Correction: Webster understands the baker perfectly, he just doesn't particularly care about any excuses that the man might have. The other soldier is trying to get Webster to back off by emphasizing what the baker is saying to him.

Mistakes

In this episode we see Blithe get shot in the neck and are told that he died in 1948. In reality he was shot in the shoulder and survived. He later served in Korea and was promoted to master sergeant as well as receiving the paratrooper of the year award. Blithe died in 1967 while on active duty in Germany.

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.
