Facts about

The sequence where the Japanese army mimicked the US Marines by wearing their uniforms was inspired from the source novel. It includes a passage where the Japanese wore American helmets whilst penetrating the American lines.
Director Cornel Wilde explained his editing process in an interview with British 'Films and Filming' magazine in October 1970: "I think that a cut from one scene to another should have an impact, should carry you from a certain degree of involvement and excitement to something else without letting you down...I really think that a good deal of happenstance editing still goes on, and part of my style is that I like to feel there is a reason and impact to every frame of film. Nothing should be wasted."
In an interview with British 'Films and Filming' magazine in October 1970, director Cornel Wilde discussed his on-set methodology : "I used to find so often in Hollywood that there was nothing more tedious than waiting around. Many directors used a stereotypical system of master shot, medium shot, over-shoulder shots, and then close-ups, with long pauses in between for cameras and lights to be adjusted. I got to my dressing room to paint or write- anything to keep my mind alive. So now my policy is to keep three camera crews working simultaneously, so that actors can move from one set-up to the next without delay. I get the occasional protest, but it isn't easy for anybody to complain that I'm working them too hard, because they can see that I'm working harder than anybody else myself."
