Trivia

Three former WW I flying aces were killed and producer Howard Hughes was injured during aerial scenes shot for Hell's Angels (1930) and producer 'Howard Hughes (I)' (qva) was injured when he crashed flying in one of the scenes (it's not known if that footage was among the scenes used from that film for this one). Since only one out of every 249 feet of film shot was used in "Hell's Angels", there was more than enough left over to lease to other films like this one. It also helped offset the tremendous cost to Hughes of filming his movie. See more »

Goofs

The Rolls-Royce limousine seen early in the film is a 1930s model made twenty years after the setting of the movie. See more »

This was a decent film. Though this is not the best film that any of the actors ever did. The plot is fairly predictable but it is okay.

Franchot Tone's fake accent was amusing and seemed to come and go. While I much prefer Jean Harlow in comedy she does well enough with drama. Cary Grant was okay but why they cast him as a Frenchman I'll never know.

My main gripe with the film was using 1930's clothes for a film that was supposed to take place during World War I. While it is not that obvious with the men's clothing, but the women's clothing really stands out. Not having period clothing really takes away from the film. You would think that a wardrobe person or the producers or director or someone would have caught how out of place the clothing is.
