Goofs: We know about 1 goofs. Here comes one of them:
Factual errors: While not a major error, the SS soldiers featured in the movie did not wear the camouflage smocks characteristic of the Waffen-SS. If they were combat veterans, rather than Allgemeiner/death camp guards (general Occupation security) troops, they should have worn camouflage smocks, camouflage covers for their helmets or full-camo uniforms in the later part of the war. Instead they were all clad in the generic grey SS uniforms, with SS 'sigrunen' collar patches, helmet insignia and long overcoats. The Second Battle Group, a Scotland-based '1st Division SS-LAH' Waffen-SS reenactment group (which was featured in 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'Steel Tempest') could have provided the necessary camouflage clothing, but I suspect the filmmakers deliberately went for the stereotyped 'evil SS troops in overcoats' to enhance the eerie and ghostly atmosphere of the bunker and its doomed trespassers.
Trivia: There are 7 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- First documentary to open the Berlin Film Festival (7 February 2008).
- Legendary executive and co-founder of Atlantic Records, Ahmet Ertegun, died as a result of a head injury he sustained from falling backstage at the opening night of the two day concert series and their subsequent filming. The film closes with a dedication to him. Eerily enough, this is not the only death to result from an incident that took place during the filming of a Rolling Stones concert documentary. In 1969 a fan named Meredith Hunter was stabbed and beaten by members of the Hell's Angels who were hired as security at the now infamous free concert by the Rolling Stones at Altamont Speedway. This tragic event was captured during the filming of another famous Stones concert documentary, Gimme Shelter (1970).
- The two Rolling Stones concerts filmed for “Shine a Light” took place at the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan. It is their second film to be shown in the IMAX format. Because of a lack of appropriate IMAX cinemas in Manhattan upon the release of the IMAX film “At The Max” in 1991, the film had to be shown at a non-conventional venue: the Beacon Theatre.
