- The River Orwell, which runs between Felixstowe and Ipswich, in Suffolk, England doubled as the Yangtze River during the making of this film.
- HMS Amethyst sustained more damage during filming than during the actual battle.
- The real HMS Amethyst was used at the start of filming. A special effects explosion was made too big and blew a hole in the hull, flooding the engine room. Amethyst was sent to the breakers and HMS Magpie was used for the rest of the film.
