* In ''Film/TheFly1986'', it's mentioned that Seth Brundle nearly won a Nobel Prize, something that no one should know because all nominations are kept secret, even from the nominees themselves.

** On the other hand, you cannot actually ''refuse'', the prize. A prize winner may refuse to attend the ceremony and turn down the prize money, but the Nobel Committees will not remove your name from the list of winners no matter how much you protest.

** Frank demands Henry approve a Purple Heart application for him twice: once when he had a back spasm while dancing with Margret - which he claimed was slipping while running to the shower - and again for getting an eggshell fragment in his eye during an artillery barrage. In the first case he would have been denied as it was not cause through direct or indirect enemy action (and likely discharged for throwing out his back), while the second case he might be eligible if it injured him and required medical attention. Both times Hawkeye steals Frank's Purple Heart and gives it to someone else, in the former to an underage Marine, Walter, that used his brother's identification (he had appendicitis and reacted badly to a blood transfusion; ineligible because it was not caused by the enemy), to impress a girl back home; while this would give him possession of the medal to impress the girl, it would do little else (and probably cause further trouble for having an unauthorised Purple Heart on top of identity theft and lying about his age). In the latter, it was to a Korean baby whose mother had a harrowing time getting to the hospital.

** Most notably, there ''isn't'' a Nobel Prize for Mathematics, although the urban legend of Nobel being cuckolded by a mathematician is false. The top prize in Math are the Abel Prize (also presented by the King of Norway) and the Fields Medal (presented by the International Mathematical Union).

* The Iron Cross, being the most iconic Prussian and German military decoration, is frequently used in films and other works of fiction to make the chest of an German officer appear less empty. What many creators of such works are not aware of is that the Iron Cross was only instituted for the duration of four major wars, to wit the [[UsefulNotes/NapoleonicWars Wars of Liberation]] (1813-1815), the [[UsefulNotes/FrancoPrussianWar Franco-German War]] (1870-1871), UsefulNotes/WorldWarI (1914-1918) and UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo (1939-1945), and could not be awarded for service in any of the intervening wars and armed conflicts.[[note]] Officially, the Iron Crosses of 1813, 1870, 1914 and 1939 were considered separate decorations, and they differed in a number of details, especially the last one; the Nazis introduced the entirely new Knight's Cross with its many gradations.[[/note]] When for instance in the British TV series ''Edward VII'' UsefulNotes/OttoVonBismarck is shown wearing an Iron Cross in the 1860s, this is incorrect as Bismarck was too young to have served in the Wars of Liberation and the episodes were set before 1870. Similarly, as ''Film/ThoseMagnificentMenInTheirFlyingMachines'' is set in 1913, Captain Rumpelstoss (Karl Michael Vogler) is obviously too young to have served and been awarded an Iron Cross in the Franco-German War. Another occasional mistake is showing junior and field officers wearing Iron Crosses around their neck pre-1939; up until then the only grade of the Iron Cross to be worn around the neck was the Grand Cross, which was reserved to commanding generals[[note]] in practice this meant commanding at least an army corps [[/note]] for winning a battle or capturing or defending an important fortress.
