  • In 1946 this became the most successful film at the box office since Gone with the Wind which was released 7 years earlier.
  • Writer Robert E. Sherwood had been the head of the Office of War Information during the Second World War, one of the reasons why Samuel Goldwyn approached him to write the script.
  • Winner of the very first BAFTA Award (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) for Best Film after the event was established in 1948.
  • According to his biographer 'A Scott Berg', Samuel Goldwyn re-released the film in a modified format to play on wide screens. It opened with all the hoopla of a new picture, including a gala premiere in Washington D.C. on February 3, 1954, with Sherman Adams, five Supreme Court justices, two cabinet members, and twenty-four senators in attendance. There was a quarter-million-dollar campaign advertising it as "The Most Honored Picture of All Time". The film grossed another $1 million.
