The Japanese soldiers shown are wearing German Stahlhelm helmets, However they are wearing them backwards, evidently the producers could not find any standard issue Japanese helmets and used the reversed German helmets. The Japanese did use this helmet to a minor degree, as they were superior to other helmets of the time, when they could get them from the beaten Chinese troops who had been issued these at the beginning of the war.

This film is rather formulaic. Clark plays an international con man thief who falls in love with a female version of himself (Ms. Russell). While this certainly doesn't break any new ground and is a very predictable by-the-numbers MGM production, you are still left with a movie that is great fun but won't change your life. I, for one, love films like this. That's because I like the formula--as did the rest of America at the time. That's because despite its short-comings the film was dripping with quality. Both actors are at the top of their game, the writing and dialog is snappy fun and the direction is on target. All-in-all, a lot of fun and sure to please fans of this genre.
