Lloyd Nolan was once set to star in this movie according to 20th Century-Fox studio publicity and the 'Hollywood Reporter' of late 1943. He would be appearing in the re-conceptualized fictionalized version of the film. A December edition of the 'Hollywood Reporter' reported Nolan to be going to be playing a squadron leader. Records of the Legal Department of the UCLA Arts Special Collections Library state that Nolan was set to play the character of Benjamin K. 'Benny 'O'Neill, a role finally played by Murray Alper. Nolan did not end up appearing in this movie. See more »

The Movie was shot on the back lot of 20th Century Fox. The studio used sailors from NAS Longbeach Ca. as extras for about 2 weeks . In the Scene when a Bomb hits the Ship i am the first man on the fire hose . They had built part of a Carrier Deck over a lake and used SBD'S on this deck for close ups but then used film footage from actual battle scene's in between . This explains difference of planes and ships.
