In scene where the last time one sees the priest praying, near the last 10-15 minutes of the film, the man behind the priest, in the far back of the left of the cabin, appears to be wearing a dark colored German officer or NCO military cap and a field gray tunic with Wehrmacht lapel patches on it. He's kind of ducking down while the priest is in frame. In the next following scenes, he is wearing a normal 1950s business suit. This may have been some sort of prank played by the director or filmmaker just to see who would notice. See more
Although not stated in the film, the film-makers clearly intended to depict a Douglas DC-7C in the movie. In the exterior scenes, we see the "7 Seas" logo on the vertical fin, and in the close-up scenes of the engines, we see four-blade props and prop spinners as on a DC-7. However, with exception of the logo, the plane shown in the exterior scenes is a DC-4, evident by the more rounded shape of the vertical fin, the length of the aircraft, and no prop spinners.
