  • 'Taylor, Robert' and Ricardo Montalban and 'Greenstreet, Sidney' were originally cast as Athos, Aramis and Richelieu.
  • Lana Turner originally accepted a studio suspension in preference to playing Lady de Winter because she considered Milady a secondary character.
  • Richelieu is referred to as prime minister and almost all traces of him being a cardinal or a man of the church have been removed (although Jean Heremans is still credited as "Cardinal Guard").
  • Because of feared pressure from church groups, M-G-M changed Richelieu from a cardinal to a prime minister, even though his true clerical office had been shown in many other films without any repercussions.

    The sword fight on the stairs between Gene Kelly and Milady's guards was used as footage from "The Royal Rascal" in "Singin' In The Rain". A glimpse of Lana Turner in the doorway can be seen before a close-up of Jean Hagen is inserted.
