Trivia

Character actor Miles Mander appears very briefly early in the film as "Lord Warrick". He is mentioned again late in the film, implying that Mr. Mander ended up on the cutting room floor.

Howard Hill, one of the great archery experts of the 1930s and 40s, worked on the earlier Errol Flynn classic The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) and in particular, provided all of the special trick shots during the famous archery tournament. He taught Flynn how to use a bow and arrow and presumably did the same for Cornel Wilde on this film.

The great Ralph Faulkner, fencing master and fight coordinator on most of the great Hollywood swashbucklers of the 1930s and 40s here doubles Henry Daniell in the climactic duel scene, much as he had done six years earlier in The Sea Hawk (1940), when Mr Daniell (described as "completely helpless" in a memo to Hal B. Wallis, because he couldn't handle a sword) had to fight Errol Flynn.

Anita Louise was originally planned by Warner Bros. to play Maid Marian in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), but a late decision to cast Olivia de Havilland after Captain Blood (1935) and The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936) being so successful was a very wise move.

The composer of the score, Hugo Friedhofer, worked on the earlier Errol Flynn classic The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) as chief orchestrator for Erich Wolfgang Korngold's award winning score. Certain elements from that score can be heard in Friedhofer's work.
