Trivia

A contemporary source said there were 1,000 airplanes flying in formation and 200 simultaneous parachute jumps. See more »

Goofs

Near the end, when Little Mike is up in the air with Big Mike, Little Mike is in the wrong seat. Two-seat airplanes of that time were balanced assuming the pilot would be in the rear-most seat. This was because the forward seat, already being at the center-of-gravity, had no real impact on the balance. With nobody in the rear seat the plane would be too nose heavy to even get off the ground, much less fly as it did in the movie. See more »

A story of manhood in the 1930's U.S. military.
4 June 2003 | by (WASHINGTON D.C.) – See all my reviews

Wallace Beery's role as BIG MIKE inspired me to overcome a recent challenge.Robert Young as Little Mike, the son,played the very human young soldier facing life altering decisions.The propeller plane air force was very interesting in light of today's SSTS,Stealth bombers & the like.Rosalind Russell & Maureen O'Sullivan gave quality performances as women on the opposite ends of the moral scale.Wallace Berry's strength of character,& admirable rectitude dominated this film.Big Mike has become a hero of mine.
