    That great British classic, "Ice Cold In Alex" has a couple of "pearlers" in it.
    Right at the end, when the MPs come to collect Anthony Quayle (Capt van der Poel), there is a SERIES I LANDROVER in very clear shot.
    Not bad considering the film is set in 1942 and the LR didnt start coming off the assembly lines until 1948!

    One of my favourite B&W British war movies I have to admit, I do not know why ! I believe there are quite a few flaws in it, including a Moggy Minor also in the square at the end !!!

    I think the real howler in Cross of iron was U.S. Navy Vought F4U Corsairs bombing the German bunkers, if i were going to be a real nit picker i'd complain about 'em using T 34/85s. Evan with the goofs i still enjoyed the film, oh yeah i hold my hands up to enjoying Iron sky, it's good escapist fun!...
