Pearl Chavez: Oh Vashti, why are you so slow?
Vashti: I don't rightly know, Miss Pearl, except I always have so much to remember.


Sen. Jackson McCanles: I once fought for that flag; I'll not fire on it.


The Sinkiller: Pearl, you're curved in the flesh of temptation. Resistance is going to be a darn sight harder for you than females protected by the shape of sows.

Facts about

David O. Selznick had originally intended this property as his artistic follow-up to Gone with the Wind. He envisioned a lavish production with no expense spared, and ultimately he got his wish. Constant production delays, many caused by Selznick's meddling and the hiring and firing of as many as seven directors (including Selznick himself), as well as an extended editing period to cut the film from its original 26-hour running time, caused the budget to balloon to a then-horrifying sum of $6 million, plus an additional $2 million in marketing costs. Though the film eventually did turn a profit, it effectively marked the end of Sleznick's career. However, he went on to produce prestige films such as The Paradine Case, Portrait of Jennie, The Third Man and A Farewell to Arms.
Jennifer Jones scraped and cut herself quite badly during the scene where she crawls over the rocks and dirt.
This film is listed among The 100 Most Amusingly Bad Movies Ever Made in Golden Raspberry Award founder John Wilson's book THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE.
