Second assistant director Chris Carreras and lead actress Bess Armstrong met whilst working on the movie. The pair started a personal relationship which lead to a marriage before the two were divorced in 1984. Publicity for the picture reported how Armstrong fell in love during the production shoot, both on the set in real life with the 2nd A.D. and on the set in the movie's story, her Eve character falling in love with Tom Selleck's Patrick character.

In the climactic battle scene, a number of the Chinese peasants can be seen using Mauser 98k rifles, a variant of the 1898 Mauser which wasn't introduced until 1935, at least a decade after this film is set. See more »
Brian G. Hutton's "High Road To China" is a classic example of good old fashioned chemistry. Lost-generation flapper hires boozy WW-I flying ace to help find her father, lost somewhere in China, to avoid losing her inheritance. You just know that they will eventually get together, and plenty of facial expressions and body language promise an ending that eventually delivers. Some great scenery and flying scenes, and burly he-manning from Brian Blessed, keep you in stitches. If this had been filmed in black and white in the 40s, it would have been up there with Casablanca, et al. Lots of low-expectation fun.
