In the film, the stairway between the upper bunker (vorbunker) and the lower bunker (fuhrerbunker) is shown as spiral. All witnesses to the final days in the bunkers say that it was a normal staircase with right angles.

At the beginning of the movie, the narrator enters Hitler's flooded underground bunker shortly after the German surrender in 1945. He wears the uniform of a U.S. Army captain, and says he is on assignment from Newsweek magazine. However, civilian publishing companies did not employ military officers as correspondents.

Miscellaneous 

At the very end of the movie, the SS man/switchboard operator, Misch is seen talking to mechanic Hentschel while preparing to flee "The Bunker". The rifle Misch has shouldered is a Russian Mosin Nagant; he would have been carrying the German Mauser of which plenty would have been available with all the wounded in the proximity. It's unlikely anyone would have taken a Russian weapon down into Hitler's Bunker.
