- Soldiers of the Red Army were used as extras to portray the British army. They panicked repeatedly and scattered during the filming of some of the cavalry charges. Attempts to reassure them by marking the closest approach of the horses with white tape similarly failed, and the scene was cut.
- This film was produced at the same time that Stanley Kubrick was preparing a film on the life of Napoleon. When this film failed at the boxoffice, Kubrick's backers bowed out and his film was never made.
