This movie has one shot of a miniature ship.
I discovered this fact after reading one of NZ Pete's terrific matteshot matte painting blogs.
Visual Effects are attributed to Ray Kellog whao started as a matte painter and eventually became head of 20th Century Fox's special effects department in 1954 after the retirement of Fred Sersen.
