Trivia / The Battleship Potemkin

  • Banned in China: At one point or another, this film has been banned in almost every country, including its own.
  • Cool Boat: The real-life pre-dreadnought battleship Potemkin was scrapped in 1923; the film used another Black Sea Fleet pre-dreadnought to represent her, Dvenadsat Apostolov (Двенадцать Апостолов"Twelve Apostles"), which was being used as a storage hulk in Sevastopol.
  • Lost in Translation: The "Potemkin" was not actually a battleship. It was an Ironclad.
