The show is usually performed in pierrot costumes[edit]

The previous editor is joking, right? Surely, this should be period, as with the play. -LlywelynII (talk) 09:49, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

No, it really was! ... complete with pom-pom buttons ... The film is in period costume, but the original stage show was pierrot - "war is for clowns" (Littlewood}; and here is an image from a production. Believe it yet? Kbthompson (talk) 11:01, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Indeed it was: I innocently caused the ruction in the filming, answering Dickie Attenborough's call for original uniforms by finding the real thing in 1968. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:07, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
I challenge the assertion that Joan Littlewood wouldn't have military uniforms on stage. I saw the original production, both at Stratford E and after transfer to Wyndham's, and I distinctly remember Brian Murphy and Glyn Edwards in officer gear. I can't cite any source for that so I won't edit the article. Stu (talk) 19:46, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
