Bedknobs And Broomsticks

Audio problem: When Professor Brown and Miss Price are eating, he asks, "Why are you so interested in that?" His mouth doesn't move in sync with the words.

Audio problem: During the Germans' attack, Price is on her broom and tells Brown to protect the kids. Bullet traces fly next to her, but no sound is heard. Then it cuts to a shot of the Germans loading and firing, and now the bangs are head.

Audio problem: The Lion King kicks the hyena's butt and sends the animal flying away and cracking up. For brief seconds and a couple of times the hyena is serious and with the mouth closed but the laugh persists.

Plot hole: When Miss Price, Professor Browne and the children return from their magical journey to the island of Naboombu and realize they no longer have the Star of Astroroth pendant, Miss Price says, "I should have known it would be quite impossible to take an object from one world into another." Yet, they had no problem taking themselves, the bed, blankets and pillows from one world into another.

Trivia: The English translations for the majority of the German dialogue towards the end of the film, as taken from recent BBC TV airings:

Guard: Yes, Yes everything is fine.

(as Mr Brown tries to stop Cosmic Creepers yowling)
Guard: What's that?

(after the guards enter Miss Price's house after hearing the yowling)
Guard: It's just a naughty cat, poor thing.

Guard 1: Colonel, The bridge is ready to blow.
Guard 2: The railway, road and quay are ready.
Colonel: Good. We detonate in ten minutes. Get everything primed for then.

(start of the march)
Colonel: It's got to be some kind of trick.
Guard: Pretty good trick!

(first sighting of Miss Price by the Germans)
Guard: It's a witch sir!
Colonel: Don't be a fool, there's no such thing as a witch!

(after seeing the size of the army of advancing inanimate objects)
Guard: Shall we retreat sir?
Colonel: Retreat? We are German Soldiers! We do not retreat!

Question: How accurate, bar the dancing obviously, is the Portobello Road presented in the film compared to how it could/would have looked in the real August 1940?

Neil Jones

Answer: Don't know what it was like in the forties, but we were there in 2010. Wonderful place to visit. So animated. Not only were their vendors, but there were Street entertainers as well. What I found amusing was before you get to the part of Portobello Road where there were these vendors, you had to go past the stately homes with gated grounds. Expensive cars with pull into the drives. Wouldn't happen here in the United States.
