The main character is based on Arch Hall Sr.
, director and star of films such as Eegah
(1962) and Wild Guitar
(1962), and was an Army buddy of the film's writer. Hall was indeed a pilot, as is his son, Arch Hall Jr.
Hall was aware his friend Bowers was writing the script and was flattered and pleased. Once the film was completed and in release, Hall sued the producers of this movie for invasion of privacy. The suit was apparently dropped or settled out of court. Bowers, writing later about his friend and the incident, not only bore Hall no malice, he thought Hall's actions were consistently in character for the sharpie with whom he'd served in uniform.

At about 38:00 Hall and Bowers run into a Lieutenant in the chow line at the enlisted men's club. Officers would not be allowed in the EM club, just as enlisted men would not be allowed in the officer's club. See more

Oh, I'm sorry, Miss Willoughby. Did I hurt you?
