The entire score was written, composed, and recorded using a Wurlitzer Pipe Organ.
A decoration meant leave - and leave, with nerves strained to the breaking point by week on week of unceasing warfare in the skies, meant only one thing - - PARIS
The film is set during the years 1917-1918. However, most of the female civilian clothes and hairstyles are contemporary with the late 1920s, particularly the clothes worn by Clara Bow in the home sequences and in the Follies Bergere sequence. Bow's and almost all the other female characters have bobbed hair, common in 1927 but almost non-existent during World War One.
For opening "roadshow" engagements, some of the battle scenes were shown in color, and half the film was screened in Magnascope (a forerunner to modern widescreen processes). Roadshow presentations also included an overture, intermission, and entr'acte music, all of which were dropped for the general release.
