Trivia

In an early scene in which Jared Whitney (George Brent) signs a hotel register, the close-up of the register page shows that the names immediately above Whitney's are "Mr. & Mrs. Donald Siegel, Sonora Cal". Don Siegel, later to gain fame as director of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) and Dirty Harry (1971), and for mentoring a budding director named Clint Eastwood, was in charge of the second unit that made such insert shots for Warner Brothers movies in the late 1930s.

It really needed Errol Flynn
16 November 2007 | by (Adelaide Australia) – See all my reviews

First of all , one has to wonder why Warner Bros.who were already on a winner with the Flynn/de Havilland pairing (e.g. Captain Blood and The Charge of the Light Brigade), chose to cast the very colorless George Brent as the hero, as he falls way short of being effective. The intro speech was pathetic, the story has been done many times, the color was poor, and if it were not for Claude Rains and Miss de Havilland it would have been almost unwatchable. But in all fairness I must say there were some very good supporting cast members, like Harry Davenport, Margaret Lindsay, the always "villain" Barton MacLane and Warner perennial player John Litel, plus others , all of whom had very little to work with. Errol Flynn was badly neede here.
