Did You Know?

Trivia:
Although the stated onscreen source credits "a series of stories" by E.W. Hornung, he actually wrote a novel called "Stingaree," which probably contained most of the story presented.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Hilda's name in the ads reads "Madame Hilda Bouverie." In fact, she is not supposed to be married at this point in the movie, and so should have been referred to as "Mademoiselle Hilda Bouverie."See more »
Quotes:
Mrs. Clarkson:...Why, the very foundation of empire is woman's virginity.
Sir Julian Kent:Chastity, madame, chastity. No empire would get very far with virginity.

Music-loving outlaw, 12 March 2012
Author: dbdumonteil

This is a really disappointing movie by highly talented Wiliam Wellman,compared with magnificent works such as "wild boys of the road" "heroes for sale" or "the conquerors",the latter also featuring Richard Dix (playing two parts in the same final scenes!) .

This far fetched story of a bandit with a big heart who helps his protégée ,a servant,to become a great diva ,is not convincing:the ending is very romantic but might disappoint the audience who might call for more .

On stage ,the diva performs the Castafiore 's biggest hit (see "the adventures of Tin Tin")in French ,Gounod's "Air Des Bijoux " (Ah!Je Ris De me Voir Si belle En Ce Miroir =Ah my beauty past compare.....) Half melodrama ,Irene Dunne's field ,half musical (there are plenty of songs),"Stingaree" should be reserved for Wellman's buffs ,but there are plenty of them,including myself.
