  • Trivia

    • Although Alberto Lattuada was the sole credited director on this film, he suffered a brief illness during shooting, and, for two weeks, direction was taken over by no less a film-maker than Michelangelo Antonioni (who had not, at that time, gained his international reputation). His contribution was anonymous.

  • Quotes

    • Pugachev: [his last words in the film]: Sometimes a bottle of vodka isn't just a bottle of vodka - it's a beginning!

  • Notes

    • This is an adaptation of Alexander Pushkin's famous novel The Captain's Daughter. However, it also contains a great deal of material taken from a non-fiction book , also written by Pushkin, concerning the Pugachev rebellion against Catherine the Great during the 1770s.
