During the film one of the executives recognized the plant that was being bombed as the VW plant which had made cars for the German army at the time. He commented, "There goes our plant", and the executives then and there decided not to sponsor the show.

    The meaning of this series' title '12 O'Clock High' is that of an example of a pilot's enemy position call. Allied pilots during World War II would vocally call-out the positions of enemy airplanes by referring to their bearings via the use of a pretend face of a clock. As such, in this case, 12 O'Clock meant the enemy was directly ahead, whereas 6 O'Clock would mean directly behind. "High" or "Low" referred to whether the enemy was above or below the airplane respectively. "Even" meant that the enemy was level with the pilot's plane.
