Facts about

Almost 5000 actors had been considered for the part of Joe Bonaparte--among them a 17-year-old Dale Robertson--and more than 80 had been given screen tests.

William Holden was considered not to be up to the role in the film, however Barbara Stanwyck urged producers to keep him in the picture, and succeeded. In 1978, at the The 50th Annual Academy Awards, before starting the presentation of the sound award, Holden publicly thanked Stanwyck for what she did.
