Facts about

French visa # 20599.
Ernest Hemingway was not shy about expressing his dismay over producer David O. Selznick casting his 38-year old wife Jennifer Jones in the role of the 21-year-old nurse Catharine in the remake of his second novel, "A Farewell to Arms" (1957). Selznick had earlier tried to generate publicity for the film by making a token payment to Hemingway for the novel, even though he was not required to do so as Hemingway had sold away the rights to his book a generation before. The gesture did not earn Hemingway's goodwill.
The critical and commercial failure of this film caused David O. Selznick to stop producing movies.
