NOTES

powered by AFI

The opening title card for this film reads: "Theodore Dreiser's The Prince Who Was a Thief." As noted in the Hollywood Reporter review, Curtis and Laurie made their starring debuts in this film, and Midge Ware and Carol Varga made their feature film debuts. Although other Hollywood Reporter news items add Bonnie Menzies, Zachary Charles, Willetta Smith, Vickie Saunders, Dolores Starr, Peggy Murray and Winona Smith to the cast, their appearance in the final film has not been confirmed. Many modern film critics have complained that Curtis' New York accent was incongruent with his role as a Middle Eastern prince. According to interviews with Curtis, his response to such accusations is that if British actors could play Romans, New York actors ought to be able to play Arabs.
