The hill you die on in relation to films are the small faux pax in films that take you out of the movie completely. Such as the typeface used for a newspaper headline that you know did not exist in the period that the film is set, in this case the 19th century. Other examples include seeing a Picasso painting go down on the Titanic when you know it still exists in a museum, or electronic funds in a heist move transferring via a slowly incrementing bar on a screen, and glasses having plain glass rather than curved lenses in them.
