Bedknobs And Broomsticks

Corrected entry: During the football match, the camera moves back and forth over the field, and sometimes Dr. Brown completely disappears.

Correction: This only occurs in the "pan and scan" version. He does not disappear in the widescreen version.

Corrected entry: Mr. Brown is sleeping on the bench in the train station. There is one shot of him just wearing sunglasses in his collar. The next shot shows that he is now wearing a spotted collar and sunglasses.

Tank

Correction: There are no sunglasses and no change whatsoever throughout the scene.

Corrected entry: When the German takes apart the armor with a grenade, if you stand about a foot away from the TV or use slo-mo, you can see the strings used to pull the knight back together.

Correction: If you need slow motion then according to the rules of the website it is not a valid mistake.

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:
(Outside the house just before Mr Brown enters back in)
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.

(after capture of Miss Price, the guard sees Mr Brown as a rabbit)
Guard 1: Jagged hare, this will be good.
Guard 2: Idiot, Do you want to wake up the whole village!

(on the battlefield, prior to Miss Price casting her spell)
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!

(as the Germans are running away)
Colonel: Hold the line or I will shoot you! You are German soldiers!

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.
