Facts about

Production was shut down for six months when William Holden contracted salmonella, and the film had to be finished in Hollywood.
This was based upon the actual "Beefsteak Raid" of September 14-16, 1864.
William Holden and Richard Widmark became good friends during the production of the film. When Widmark became ill with the flu and was confined to his room, Holden bought him a snare drum because he knew Widmark played the drums. Widmark later remarked, "That four months of being constantly together on a film location was the equivalent of ten or fifteen years of friendship."
