* ViewersAreMorons: When Schlemmer recognises the reporter as his former SS officer, he addresses him as "Herr Oberleutnant" (the equivalent of a (First) Lieutenant), a rank familiar to English-speaking viewers, but which was not actually used in the SS. The German dub has Schlemmer saying "Herr Obersturmführer", which does give away that the man is a Nazi, as ''Obersturmführer'' was the equivalent of ''Oberleutnant'' in the SS and the SA.

* DeweyDefeatsTruman: When production commenced in Berlin, there was no wall. Halfway through production, the Deutsche Demokratische Republik decided, [[{{Understatement}} quite inconveniently]], to erect the first layers of what would eventually become Die Mauer. This threw a monkey wrench in the plans of the filmmakers, especially when they had obtained permits to shoot near the Brandenburg Gate. It also meant that as mentioned above, that the movie entered theaters already dated with a side of TooSoon.

** In-movie there is the Grand Hotel [[Film/BattleshipPotemkin Potemkin]], formerly Grand Hotel [[ThoseWackyNazis Goering]], and before that Grand Hotel [[UsefulNotes/OttoVonBismarck Bismarck]]. And the scene where Ingeborg's energetic dance causes the portrait of Khrushchev to fall out of its frame, revealing a portrait of Stalin.

'''''One, Two, Three''''' is a comedy movie by Creator/BillyWilder from 1961. Set in UsefulNotes/{{Berlin}} shortly before the wall was built, it's about the boss of Coca-Cola West Berlin, who has to care for the daughter of his boss spending her holiday there. And tries to do business with some Communists, to expand Coca-Cola beyond the Iron Curtain. And finds his marriage is about to fall apart. HilarityEnsues (lots of!).
