Facts about

A 1945 trade publication announced that Claudette Colbert was being considered for a role as a French aristocrat, but by the time this film came out in 1948, that role no longer existed.
Besides footage from The Adventures of Robin Hood for Don Juan's escape into the night - footage also from The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex was used for Don Juan's entry into London. A ten year younger Errol Flynn can clearly be seen as Essex in the distant shots as he leads his entourage through London to the palace just as Don Juan is doing in the later film
Although Raoul Walsh was originally slated to direct this project in 1945, Errol Flynn had a falling-out with him, and by 1947 Michael Curtiz, who had directed some of Flynn's greatest early films until he and Flynn had a falling-out, too, was assigned to the project. As production neared, Jean Negulesco replaced Curtiz, but Negulesco bowed out in favor of the film's ultimate director, Vincent Sherman.
