Did You Know?
- The uniform worn by Jean Gabin in the film is Jean Renoir’s air force uniform from WWI.
- Despite it being a war film, no combat is ever shown.
- An effort was made to shoot during the winter while snow was still fresh on the ground. When that failed, and production ran into the springtime, plaster was used to achieve the look of snow.
