Facts about

In several of the scenes in Mexico, a large smoke cloud is seen on the horizon. At the end of the movie smoke is shown rising from a volcano. This is most likely a fortuitous eruption of the Paricutin volcano in 1947, when the movie was filmed, standing in for the eruption of Popocatepetl on Cortez's day.
When Director of Photography Arthur E. Arling fell behind schedule, Charles G. Clarke was taken off of Miracle on 34th Street and replaced him.
Jean Peters had never acted before this film. She replaced Linda Darnell, who was originally cast in the lead but shortly before production began 20th Century-Fox took her off the picture and gave her the lead in Forever Amber. Peters was given the lead in this picture based on a screen test she had taken at Fox just a week before filming began that had impressed the film's producers.
