Trivia
Although John Wayne was pleased to have been cast in such an important movie, he was unhappy with his part and once complained he was only there to make Ray Milland look like a "real man".

Cecil B. DeMille had wanted Errol Flynn to play Captain Jack Stuart, but Jack L. Warner refused to loan him out.

One of over 700 Paramount productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since.

Goofs
The song "'Tis But A Little Faded Flower", was published in 1860, but sung in the film, which is set in the 1840s.
Share this
Incorrectly regarded as a goof: John Wayne's reference to Mother Carey's Chickens has nothing to do with Kate Douglas Wiggins 1911 novel. It is a seafaring name for the Storm Petrel, so-called because the birds appear before a storm. Mother Carey is a corruption of Mater Cara (Dear Mother), an epithet of the Virgin Mary, to whom Portuguese and Spanish sailors used to pray before a storm.

Jack makes a reference to "Mother Carey's Chickens", although the movie is set in the 1840s and Kate Douglas Wiggin's novel wasn't published until 1911.
