Trivia

Feature film debut for Peter O'Toole.
Peter O'Toole was cast for the part of Robin MacGregor, because he had played the pipes in his youth and the director was looking for a tall young actor who could play the pipes.
In March 1979, this became the Disney Studios' first - and only complete - feature film to be released on MCA's DiscoVision format. It received its Laserdisc reissue on February 6, 1992.

Ebenezer Balfour pays 20 pounds to have David kidnapped. That is roughly equivalent to a year's pay for a worker at that time and would equate to over $2000 in today's prices.
