Contrary to published interviews later in her life, author Meridel Le Sueur is not involved in this film in any capacity; although she claimed to have been Pauline's double in a sword fight, the only sword fight in the film is between two male antagonists, and at the time the film was made, on the East Coast, Le Sueur was only fourteen years old, still in school, and living in Kansas.
