Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Some of Ingrid Thulin's dialogue was re-dubbed with the voice of Angela Lansbury.

    • This film is a remake of the silent film of the same title which, in 1921, was a sensational box-office success (directed by Rex Ingram) and made a world star out of Rudolph Valentino in the role of Julio Desnoyers.

  • QUOTES (1)

  • NOTES (1)

    • Vincente Minnelli believed that the main problem with this remake was the insistence of the top brass at M-G-M that the period of the story be moved from that of the First World War to that of the Second. Several years earlier, M-G-M had done the same thing with another remake of a silent film, If Winter Comes, with similarly disastrous box-office results.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • This remake cost M-G-M some $7,500,000, about three times the average cost of a Hollywood film of the period. It was a considerable financial and critical failure, and some have speculated that the career of its director, Vincente Minnelli, never recovered from it. Although he had averaged at least one film, and sometimes as many as three films, per year in the previous twenty years of his directing career, he thereafter made only six more films in the remaining twenty-four years of his life, three of the them in the next three years. Only one of the six, The Sandpiper in 1965, was a box-office success, and that film is usually regarded as his worst.
