Although Germans enjoyed this movie when it was released in 1940, they weren't happy about the current ending written by Ben Hecht. Germans disliked the ending because it made it look like it was Germany who was attacking Great Britain, although it was Great Britain who declared war on Germany on September 3, 1939, and it was Great Britain who rejected the peace offers sent to them by National Socialist Germany under Adolf Hitler.

Opening credits prologue: To those intrepid ones who went across the seas to be the eyes and ears of America...

To the Foreign Correspondents - this motion picture is dedicated.
