Facts about

When Korda re-released this film circa 1944, he commissioned a new trailer which implied that James Mason (by then a huge box office star for rival studio Gainsborough) was a major star of the film. In fact, Mason plays a tiny role in "Fire Over England" and his name does not even appear in the credits!
Vivian Leigh and Laurence Olivier credit this movie as being the inspiration for their falling in love. Although both were married to other people, they became known as "the lovers" on the set.
In this film, Vivien Leigh plays "Cynthia" a servant of Queen Elizabeth I, played by Flora Robson. In _Cleopatra (1945)_, Flora Robson plays a servant of Queen Cleopatra, played by Vivien Leigh.
