Trivia

The original footage was shot back in the 1910's before the ability to synchronise sound and pictures had been invented. At the time, the film was advanced by the cameraman turning handle at a roughly constant speed, whereas to synchronise with sound, a constant-speed clockwork or electric motor is needed. Consequently, every single sound effect was added later. See more »

Goofs

Several shots of tanks appear in the film, both Mark V (Mark Five) and Mark V* (Mark Five Star). They have been coloured green. In reality, tanks of these types were painted "a neutral brown colour". See the article by the British Tank Museum which states that. "Surrendering to the inevitable, towards the end of 1916 it was ordered that the tanks should be painted in a 'neutral brown colour' all over." The staff at the Museum told me they were surprised that the filmmakers didn't consult them. See more »

The Great War has never been so vivid. This film is an absolute tour de force: a must-see.
