Trivia

  • Legend has it that Frank Sinatra got the role in the movie because of his speculated Mafia connections, and that this was the basis for a similar subplot in The Godfather. The truth is more likely to have been that Sinatra's then-wife Ava Gardner persuaded studio head Harry Cohn's wife to go to bat for him, the version related by Kitty Kelley in her comprehensive Sinatra biography.
  • A rumor has been circulating for years that George Reeves, who played Sgt. Maylon Stark, had his role drastically edited after preview audiences recognized him as TV's "Superman".
  • The famous beach lovemaking scene between Lancaster and Kerr was lampooned in the movie Airplane!, where Robert Hays' and Julie Hagerty's characters become covered in seaweed.
  • The movie was also remade as a TV miniseries in 1979.
  • The U.S. Army withheld its cooperation from the production until the producers agreed to several modifications, most noticeably the fate of Captain Holmes.
