Trivia

  • The actual firearm used by York to dispose of a line of seven Germans was not a Luger as depicted in the film, but rather a .45 Colt automatic. The Luger was preferred for the filmmaking, however, purely on the basis that they couldn't get the .45 to fire blanks.
  • Alvin York allowed the making of a movie based on his life only under the condition that Gary Cooper should play him.
