Trivia Eddie Albert's part in this film (as a US Air Force major) is one of several military roles he played in his earlier career. These were satirised in 'Green Acres', when it is explained that Oliver served as US pilot in WWII and was shot down over Hungary, where he was rescued by his future wife Lisa. See more »
