Facts about

None of the locations were "stock footage" since this was one of the first CinemaScope movies. The locations were shot by a second unit in Britain during the spring and summer of 1953 specifically for this film. Stand-ins doubled for the principal cast in long shots which were then matched at 20th Century-Fox studios and ranch in California during the autumn of 1953. The English stand-in for Janet Leigh's Aleta character was a teenage Shirley Eaton (later to become the James Bond Goldfinger girl).
The average shot length of this film is about 7 seconds. This is fast for an early CinemaScope film, and is low given the 8 - 11 second average of most Hollywood films made between 1930 and 1960.
