Trivia

  • Director 'Powell, Michael' originally wanted Wendy Hiller to play Blimp's "ideal woman", but she was unavailable, so the part was given to Deborah Kerr.
  • 'Powell, Michael' 's golden cocker spaniels Erik and Spangle make their second appearance on film as Clive and Barbara return from their honeymoon.
  • The tapestry seen in the opening credits was made by the members of The Royal College of Needlework.
  • Winston Churchill hated the film and wanted it banned.
  • Director 'Powell, Michael' was intrigued by how second unit cameraman Jack Cardiff was filming the animal heads and gave Jack his first big break as the cinematographer on his next film Matter of Life and Death, A (1946).
  • Three-quarters of the Germans in the crowd at the POW camp are "carefully painted and positioned" plaster models.
