Trivia

Gregory Peck personally chose Lewis Milestone to direct because Milestone's All Quiet on the Western Front (1930) had made a deep impression on him.
According to director Lewis Milestone, the film was cut by nearly 20 minutes because Gregory Peck's wife felt that her husband made his first entrance too late into the picture. True or not, the film does show signs of post-production tampering, with flashes of several excised scenes showing up under the main title credits.
