Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • After the tremendous success of The Bridge on the River Kwai, producer Sam Spiegel and David Lean were keen to work together on a similarly worthy topic. Initially the pair considered making a film of the life of Mahatma Gandhi but soon gave up on that.
  • Gamil Ratib was dubbed by Robert Rietty.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): In the opening scene he is riding a motorcycle at high speeds, but his hair does not get swept back as it would at high speeds.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): At several points in the movie, Turkish soldiers are shown using Browning Model 1919A6 .30 caliber air-cooled machine guns. The Browning 1919 first entered service in 1919, too late to have been used in WWI. The Turks would have been using German Maxim machine guns. At other times, they are shown using Short-Magazine Lee-Enfield rifles which were standard issue to the British Empire forces. The Turks would, in all likelihood, have been carrying German Mausers.
