Trivia

The Santa Maria, a 609-foot-long, 20,900-ton Portuguese luxury cruise liner, featured prominently in the picture, both in an aerial view on the sea, and several scenes shot on board. Less than a year after, the same line cruiser was taken by members of Portuguese and Spanish opposition movements in what is believed to be the first sea pirate high-jacking in the 20th century.
