Facts about

It was during a Parkinson interview that his good friend David Niven revealed that during the filming of The Charge of the Light Brigade, Errol Flynn was busy on a horse during a break applying makeup with one hand whilst holding a mirror in the other. An extra decided to "pock" the horse up the behind with his lance - the horse bucked, throwing Flynn to the ground. He got to his feet and asked who had done that, the extra volunteered, thinking that this would only add to his embarrassment. However, Flynn dragged him from the horse and gave him a sound beating. They were the best of friends after that.
The film is dedicated "to the officers and men of the Light Brigade who died victorious in a gallant charge at Balaklava for Queen and Country - A.D. 1856."
The second of nine movies made together by Warner Brothers' romantic couple Olivia de Havilland and Errol Flynn.
