Facts about

During filming Gary Cooper arranged for his daughter to "date" gay actor Tab Hunter. He had previously arranged for her to "date" gay actor Anthony Perkins while they were filming Friendly Persuasion, a film he hated.
John Wayne criticized what he perceived to be a "lack of patriotism" of this film, saying "How they got Gary Cooper to do that one, to me, at least, it simply degrades the Medal of Honor. The whole story makes a mockery of America's highest award for valor, the whole premise of the story was wrong, illogical because they don't pick the type of men the movie picked to win the award, and that can be proved by the very history of the award."
Film debut of Michael Callan.
