Trivia Scenes of the parliament building were shot on location and included Nazi flags and banners, displayed for the first time since WWII ended. See more »
Goofs The Norwegian saboteurs used so-called 'Limpet Mines' to sink German ships. Such mines contained only a small amount (4 kg) of explosives and were placed on a target ship's hull beneath the water line. In that position, even a small hole can do a lot of damage (in part due to the water pressure surrounding the hull). In the movie, though, more than once, we see giant, flaming explosions when the mines detonate. Those types of pyrotechnics simply do not occur with the use of small, below-the-water-line Limpet mines. See more »
