Goofs
Both Heydrich and Hitler wear pre-war Nazi Party and SS uniforms throughout most of the film - Heydrich in a black SS uniform with swastika armband and Hitler in a brown Nazi Party jacket. By 1942, when Heydrich was killed, all SS personnel wore field grey uniforms and Hitler had by this time adopted a grey soldier's coat which had replaced his older style brown jacket.
