Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:How I Won the War DVD cover.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 03:53, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Famous Beatles hit "A Day in the Life" makes a reference to this film. The lyrics:

"I saw a film today, oh boy. The English army had just won the war. The crowd of people turned away. But I just had to look, having read the book".

Very very clever and witty. Commenting on how poor the film was received compared to the novel —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:16, 29 October 2009 (UTC)

А вот интересно - кто заставил Джона в этом фильме раз и навсегда отказаться от контактных линз? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:05, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

Да, близоруких в мире навалом. Но возвести свою близорукость в культ, да еще и спихивать на нее все свои возможные и невозможные грехи - это мог делать только он один: ДЖОН УИНСТОН ОНО ЛЕННОН! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:37, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

DVD Release[edit]

Considering, the DVD release is imminant (I cba with spellin' today), shouldn't there be a section, on about the DVD release - why, has it tooken, so long to get onto DVD etc. Yeepsi (Talk to me!) 16:48, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

"Ghost" soldiers[edit]

I recall the reason why some dead soldiers appear in bright colours is that their colour corresponds to the tint applied to the film of the battle in which they died (a tint was erroneously removed during a late stage of production). Can't remember where I saw that or if it was ever true: you think the director would see the film before signing it off... (talk) 11:15, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
