Quotes from

Duke de Lorca: You can see we have several interesting devices in this chamber. They have the tendency to break a man's will. If the first one fails, we try another until we find exactly the right one to loosen the tongue.
Count de Polan: I've heard of men whose tongues have withstood it.
Duke de Lorca: Yes, but they now speak with the tongues of angels.

--Robert Douglas (as Duke de Lorca)
Don Juan: A man gives up everything: a rich full life and the first time he tries to be utterly sincere, what happens?
Leporello: That's exactly what I'm trying to find out.
Don Juan: Well, mind your own business!

--Errol Flynn (as Don Juan de Maraña)
Don Juan: [to Duke De Lorca] The sword is not for a traitor. You'll die by the knife!

--Errol Flynn (as Don Juan de Maraña)

Facts about

Erich Wolfgang Korngold was assigned to score this film when shooting began in 1945 and even sketched some themes. When production was postponed until 1947 (due to Errol Flynn's illness and other problems) Max Steiner replaced Korngold because, by then, he had announced his retirement from motion pictures. In October 1947 he suffered a heart attack and, in spite of pleas from Leo F. Forbstein, Music Chief at Warners, Korngold refused to return to the studio.
Errol Flynn did not wear a wig and let his naturally curly hair grow for the role. The producers were worried about it becoming unruly during the climactic fight scenes, so it was decided that he wear a bandanna.
With the failure of Errol Flynn's non-action films Escape Me Never and Never Say Goodbye, Warners producer Jerry Wald argued that the star should return to a large-scale swashbuckler, especially after Captain Blood, The Sea Hawk and The Adventures of Robin Hood had enjoyed recent successful theatrical revivals. Unfortunately for Flynn, this film continued his string of critical and financial flops, and the budgets of subsequent Flynn films were reduced considerably.
