NOTES

powered by AFI

The working title of this film was Halfway to Shanghai. The film is mistakenly referred to as Burma Cowboy in the Variety review. An additional song is featured in the film, although the title could not be determined. Most contemporary reviews point out that this was the first film to deal with the trucking lifeline along the Burma Road to China just prior to the outbreak of World War II. Motion Picture Herald Prod Digest notes that while the film deals with the "trucking of munitions along the Burma Road to the Chinese army under British direction and with some Americans participating in the proceedings, there is no dialogue reference to Japan, and the parachute troops who attempt to sabotage the convoy are identified as Chinese insurrectionists."
