Trivia This was the film debut of Mia Farrow, the daughter of the film's director John Farrow. See more »
Goofs Prior to the battle between Serapis and Bonhomme Richard, Captain Pearson of the Serapis states that it is probably John Paul Jones' squadron. Although Pearson knew there was an American raiding force in the area, he actually thought that Jones' force was a Royal Navy squadron also in the area. It was this confusion which allowed Jones to get close to Serapis before the action began. See more »
