Shooting took 66 days. Paulette Goddard’s husband, Burgess Meredith, was making the film  – Mine Own Executioner for Korda at the same time.    After filming, the two of them appeared on stage in Dublin in Winterset

Korda subsequently lent some of the costumes for the wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip.

This film was shot in glorious Technicolor. It is a film I have not seen lately if at all if I think about it although it gets good reviews.
