YMMV / The Guns of Navarone
- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The song played by the band at the cafe where the team try hiding. It basically exists because if you've got James Darren, you're not going to never have him sing.
- Fridge Horror: The German army in Greece routinely killed 100 civilians for every German soldier killed. For the approximately 50 men on the gun crews they will probably kill nearly 5000 Greeks.
- Memetic Mutation: "You're in it now, up to your neck" is a popular line for Gregory Peck impressions.
- Retroactive Recognition: Richard Harris is a One-Scene Wonder as the bomber pilot who explains the impossibility of bombing Navarone from the air. This came two years before his Star-Making Role in This Sporting Life.
