Trivia

Joan Fontaine plays the romantic lead opposite Robert Taylor in this film, which involves the return of King Richard to the throne of England and features Robin Hood as a minor character. Fourteen years earlier Fontaine's sister Olivia de Havilland played the romantic lead opposite Errol Flynn in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), a film set around similar events. See more »

Goofs

In the final sequence, apparently Cedric is able to go to Austria and the king is able to reach England in the same time as it takes for Ivanhoe to ride to the court, perhaps a few days. (In fact, when Ivanhoe announces Rebecca's location to her father, he states Isaac has 40 days to ransom her or she will be tried as a witch. The trial takes place after the 40 days have expired and the combat at Ashby is held 3 days later, giving Cedric at least 43 days to reach Austria, ransom Richard, and return to England.) See more »

A short anecdote on the making of this film
28 November 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It was in this film that the legendary stuntman, Paddy Ryan, did a spectacular fall into an amazingly small amount of water. I started working in the UK in 1960 and there was still talk among casts and crews of Paddy's famous fall. I met Paddy a few times and asked him about the stunt dive. He said it was no big deal. He remembered being asked by some publicist why he did such dangerous things. He replied that he looked down from the great height, imagined he saw his pay check lying there, and took off! I suggested that he should write his memoirs. He said he had started and had spent a long time writing it all out by hand and had almost finished when his manuscript was stolen from, if I remember correctly, his car. He said he was too fed up to sit down and do it all again. What a loss!
