The Army Technical Advisor for the film wrote about the making of the film in "Walter Huston and "Keep 'em Rolling" By Maj. Gen. H. W. Blakeley, USA, Ret. THE FIELD ARTILLERY JOURNAL May-June 1950 pp. 114-116. In it he says "That night I read the script, and bright and early the next morning I reported to Colonel Joyce that it in my opinion was impossible to even think of permitting Army participation in the production of the story as written. It reflected on the Army, was unrealistic in dialogue and military procedures, and my "technical advice" was to have a showdown right now. A major re-write was indicated. The reaction from the moving picture people was understandably violent, but Colonel Joyce stood firm. As the rest of the company, including Walter Huston, Frances Dee, and Frank Conroy, was on the way by train, the RKO representatives were on a spot. Eventually, the decision was made to ease out the writer who had done the screen version, and a new writer, Albert Shelby LeVino, was brought east by air.
