Facts about

'The Hollywood Reporter' announced in December 1956 that James Garner would be starring in this movie but alas in the end Garner did not end up being in this picture.
The meaning and relevance of this movie's title Bombers B-52 is that it is a rewording of the name for the B-52 Bomber aircraft. They actually have the technical name of being known as "Boeing B-52 Stratofortress" aircraft. These airplanes are American subsonic jet-powered strategic long-range bomber aircraft which were initiated by the USAF (United States Air Force) in 1955. This movie was released in 1957 soon after when these aircraft were very new to the world of aviation.
The new at-the-time B-52 Stratofortress bomber airplanes as featured in this movie weighed 500,000 pounds and could fly at a speed of 650+ miles per hour and travel 17,000 miles without actually stopping, according to a review in 'The Hollywood Reporter'.
