On the subject of movie errors the one that always earns me a thump from Maggie is when I complain about the DB isignia on the locomotive & coaches in "The Great Escape" !

There is simply no excuse for not getting a major prop like a railway locomotive correct.

Ah, but we notice the trains in the same way that people watch the cars or notice things like TV aerials !

I once saw a WWII movie that had a Land Rover in it !

Ar'nt we good at digressing on MRF ?

Thanks for putting my mind at rest John - it's been bugging me since my post !
