Change of ending quote
I've moved the bit about changing the quote at the end of the film down a bit - it's not really plot related but more about the release itself.
However, I'm pretty sure the copy I have is the 2004 DVD release, and it ends with the Few. Does the altered quote only appear in that specific version, Region 2?
- I just watched the Region 1 DVD and the quote at the end is the "end of the beginning" one. --Jtle515 (talk) 03:00, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
It's noted that the film makes no mention that Dowding and Park were replaced after the campaign - but the film's about the Battle of Britain, not its aftermath. Anyone think it'd be reasonable to delete the reference to the non-mention of the replacement? Notreallydavid (talk) 09:12, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
- There's a 1969 documentary on the making of the 'Battle of Britain' film, narrated by Michael Caine, here on YouTube:  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 18:09, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
More comprehensive index required ?
Does anyone know how to improve the index to include the sub sections of the Production section (i.e. Production, Aircraft Models, Historical Accuracy, Locations and Releases) as sub headings with direct links to them ? I compared them to the index for other pages with sub sections on the index (e.g. the page for the Battle of Britain) and the sub sections appear to be the same Level 3 headlines yet the ones on the BofB film page have no sub section heading in the index. Why is that ?--JustinSmith (talk) 09:43, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
I`ve worked out how to get the sub headings back. I do wonder why anyone would suppress a full index in an encyclopedia ! ? !--JustinSmith (talk) 08:39, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
Back to the future
See the credits of the film. How did an Israeli pilot fight in the Battle of Britain? Israel was created in 1947. Please explain. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 01:31, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
Were any of the German pilots/crew Jewish? 150,000 of the German military were Jewish, including high ranking Luftwaffe members.
The film does not mention that Hitler personally allowed the British military to escape after they were encircled by Panzers at Dunkirk. He wanted peace with Britain and wanted the British military to prevent Stalin overrunning Europe (and Britain). Churchill eventually came to his senses after WW2 and said the same things Hitler had been saying about the Soviets for decades. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 01:59, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
The film correctly mentions that Hitler never regarded Britain as a natural enemy of Germany. When informed that British newspapers regularly stated that Hitler regarded Britain as an enemy, Hitler wrote a letter to Lord Rothermere stating that in none of his 4-5,000 speeches had he said or written anything against Britain or Britain's interests. In 1938 Hitler offered to resign if that would lead to peace with Britain. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 02:04, 4 May 2018 (UTC)
