Trivia

The film was largely unavailable in the U.S. for more than fifty years. Bootleg versions existed throughout that time but the film was not released in American markets due to its box-office and critical failure. Turner Classic Movies broadcast the film on November 29th, 2012 and released it on Blu-ray/DVD less than a month later.

Bob Hope and Katharine Hepburn had a difficult and wary relationship during production as Hepburn became aware that the film was being changed to a typical Hope comedy leaving nearly fifty percent of her work on the film on the cutting room floor. As a result writer Ben Hecht unsuccessfully tried to have his name removed from the film.

The "MIG" shown at the beginning of the movie is not an F86 Saberjet it is an F84 Thunderstreak. Note the wings are higher on the body and the cockpit is further aft on an F84 than an F86.
