The first assigned director, Ludwig Berger, wanted his old friend, the 80-year-old Austrian operetta composer Oscar Straus, to compose the score. Miklos Rozsa only won the assignment by sitting in an office adjoining Berger's and playing his catchy melodies over and over again. The Viennese waltzes that Straus had supplied were quickly dropped in favor of Rozsa's sweeping and colorful score.
Vivien Leigh was originally cast in the role of the Princess, but when, in late 1938, she won the part of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind. Korda gave the role to young, up and coming starlet, June Duprez.
