Facts about

While shooting parts of this German film in Dublin, some gypsy extras came up to Christopher Lee between takes and inquired about his origins. From the observation of his physical type and the few informations Lee told them about his father, their conclusion was that he must definitely have been of some gypsy ancestry himself.
