One of over 700 Paramount productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Its initial television broadcast took place in Chicago Tuesday 3 February 1959 on WBBM (Channel 2), followed by Omaha 13 February 1959 on KETV (Channel 7), by Seattle 21 June 1959 on KIRO (Channel 7), by Grand Rapids 28 October 1959 on WOOD (Channel 8), by Pittsburgh 29 October 1959 on KDKA (Channel 2), by Phoenix 1 November 1959 on KVAR (Channel 12), by Milwaukee 6 November 1959 on WITI (Channel 6), by Detroit 5 December 1959 on WJBK (Channel 2), and by Minneapolis 19 December 1959 on WTCN (Channel 11).. At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were all still in B&W. Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. It was released on DVD 9 December 2014 as part of the Universal Vault Series.

I was fortunate enough to tape this movie off of a local PBS station in New Jersey, and I consider it one of my treasures. My copy is very viewable. I liked this movie as a youngster, and like it so much I made a model of the Fokker DVII in the black and white motif the same as the one Pat Falconer (Fred McMurray) shot down in the WW I sequence. It too is one of my prize possessions. As I said in the summary, considering the year it was made it holds up well.
