Change of ending quote
I've moved the bit about changing the quote at the end of the film down a bit - it's not really plot related but more about the release itself.
However, I'm pretty sure the copy I have is the 2004 DVD release, and it ends with the Few. Does the altered quote only appear in that specific version, Region 2?
How much money overall did the "Battle Of Britain" make (or lose)
In the article it`s stated that on it`s release at cinemas the film lost money. However, since then it must have made significant amounts in repeated viewings on the TV, video/DVD sales and use of the footage in various documentaries. It seems these days you can`t view any programme about the B of B without seeing excerpts of the film ! The lastest example I`ve seen being "Fighting the Blue". Does anyone know if, overall counting everything in, the film still made a loss ?--JustinSmith (talk) 16:53, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
- Agreed, I think adding clarity to this point would improve the article. Maury Markowitz (talk) 18:33, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
It's noted that the film makes no mention that Dowding and Park were replaced after the campaign - but the film's about the Battle of Britain, not its aftermath. Anyone think it'd be reasonable to delete the reference to the non-mention of the replacement? Notreallydavid (talk) 09:12, 18 September 2014 (UTC)
Engines in the mock ups

More comprehensive index required ?
Does anyone know how to improve the index to include the sub sections of the Production section (i.e. Production, Aircraft Models, Historical Accuracy, Locations and Releases) as sub headings with direct links to them ? I compared them to the index for other pages with sub sections on the index (e.g. the page for the Battle of Britain) and the sub sections appear to be the same Level 3 headlines yet the ones on the BofB film page have no sub section heading in the index. Why is that ?--JustinSmith (talk) 09:43, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
I`ve worked out how to get the sub headings back. I do wonder why anyone would suppress a full index in an encyclopedia ! ? !--JustinSmith (talk) 08:39, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
