Cinema scope arrived on 1955 and permanently altered the form of the epic film. Anthony Mann's Strategic Air Command unveiled wide-screen flying scenes almost identical to those in Jeh Pilot. Up-to-date air footage was added and the film was reformatted for the wide screen. In the year 1957, von Sternberg gave up on Broadway and moved back to Los Angeles, driving alone cross-country in his Jaguar while Meri and the children traveled by train. Von Sternberg was languishing at the time when other directors of his age enjoyed active careers. Few younger producers knew his work, and those who did were cautious of his reputation as a trouble maker.
