To help out the war effort, the actors tried hard to keep the number of takes low so as to conserve film. Roughly thirty of the scenes were done in one take. See more »
Although the story is supposed to take place in the 17th century, Lady Margaret has a medallion with a colour photo inside. You can clearly see it's a photo when Jamie first finds the medallion and then opens it. Photography was not invented until the 19th century. See more »
Your presence is more disturbing to Madam Waring, I assure you!
Capt. Billy Leech:
Now, Jamie. You're talking different than you used to. I recall you trading me a girl for two barrels of rum! Of course, this ones better. All in one price she's got two ears, no fingers missing, worth three barrels of rum!
Why don't you offer him FIVE?
Don't tempt him, Darling, I might take it!

This may be an "escapist" movie but it's one of my very favorites: rich technicolor, clever romantic repartee in the script . . . plus Tyrone Power in a red & black outfit "to die for." When old Ty wasn't trying to appear rough and tough with a few hairs and some stray wine drops on his chest, that is (I think they used to shave chests then, along with pit hair).
FUN! This movie proves you don't even have to have a sex scene to get your imagination working and then some.
Throw in some fencing (Tyrone did his own), plenty of tall ships, excellent secondary role actors, including George Sanders and Anthony Quinn. Wow, all I can say is this movie was so good, I bought it so I can see it over and over again.
