Trivia This was Olivia de Havilland's first film role in three years. She was suspended by Warner Brothers when she filed suit against the studio on August 23, 1943, and was officially fired by the studio after she won her suit by unanimous decision on December 8, 1944. Because of this lawsuit and her reputation as a perfectionist, de Haviland was labeled "difficult" in show business, temporarily making her an undesirable choice for many producers. See more »
Goofs When Captain Cosgrove shuts off the power to his biplane it continues to glide on a level path. Biplanes have very high drag because they have two wings and all the supports in between. The plane would have started to fall toward the ground, not continue on. The clouds in the background show a level path of travel. See more »
