Goofs
The scenes showing Peter Cook, Dudley Moore and Gert Fröbe romping about on a frozen Swedish lake show mountains, reindeer and cable cars. Would had been OK if they hadn't been on their way to Malmö in the south of Sweden, where there are no mountains and no reindeer. Thus, the sign "Eslöv 5 km" (or whatever) got an extra laugh in Sweden.

At the Paris checkpoint modern cars and trucks can be see across the river.

When the two cars disrupt the hockey match on the frozen Swedish lake, Barrington is hit by a snowball hurled through the passenger window. Yet immediately beforehand, Barrington's window is wound up (Dawlish leans across and taps on it), and immediately afterward the window is still closed (the car ploughs through a snow bank, and we see blobs of snow stuck to the window).
