Trivia of The Sea Chase

- Prior to the start of filming in Hawaii, 'John Wayne (I)' (qv) went scuba diving and developed an ear infection. As a result, he was in severe pain for much of shooting. Many of Wayne's scenes could be shot only on his "good" side, since the infected ear was so swollen, and between takes he had to go lie down to rest from the pain. Full Trivia >>
