Other mistake: In the opening scene on the airplane, one of the men tells Lt. Cable, "The captain wants to know if you'd like to sit up in the cockpit with him?" Buzz Adams, the "captain" referenced in this line, is only a lieutenant. Admittedly, "captain" is a standard aviation term for the pilot of an aircraft, but it would be unlikely to be used in this situation, since the term has a specific military meaning.
Trivia: During production, a typhoon struck the island where this movie was being filmed. Afterward, palm trees that had been knocked down by the storm had to be put back together by the film crew.
Emile de Becque: When all you care about is here, this is a good place to be.
Nellie: What a pinhead I was.
Nellie: Mother says older men are better for a girl than young men.
Lt. Cable: This has been a discouraging day for me.
Question: I have heard that the role of Bloody Mary was dubbed in this movie. Who dubbed her, and why isn't that person listed in the credits (given that Giorgio Tozzi, who dubbed Emile de Becque, is credited)? Also, were Nellie and Lt. Cable dubbed? Again, no one is credited, but their singing voices sound dubbed to me. Can anyone shed some light on this?
Question: Why was Bloody Mary's singing voice dubbed, given that Juanita Hall was a strong singer who had performed the role on Broadway?
