Howards End
Movie Quote Quiz

Margaret Schlegel: Unlike the Greek, England has no true mythology. All we have are witches and fairies.

Aunt Juley: All the Schlegels are exceptional. They are British to the backbone, of course, but their father was German, which is why they care for literature and art.

Factual error: Some characters are shown at Paddington Station and in the background the train shown at the platform is a 1920s Southern Railway green electric driving coach. Paddington at the time of the film was home to the Great Western Railway which never operated electric trains and never used green livery on carriages. Furthermore the carriage was issuing copious amounts of steam (accurate for the period and venue) but impossible from an electric train.
