"This movie was one of the few productions (besides several made in Russia and Yugoslavia) who took the time and the effort of duplicating WW2 German Tiger tanks. (The only other American production who did this was Kelly's Heroes (1970), until Steven Spielberg did the same for his movie Saving Private Ryan (1998).")

In the scene with the SS Officer's wedding Heydrich refers to him as "Leutnant" which was the German Army of second lieutenant. He should be addressed as "Untersturmfuhrer" (2nd Lt) or "Obersturmfuhrer" (Ist Lt). The same officer is addressed correctly by Karl Frank whilst discussing the fate of Lidice later in the film.
