Trivia

It was rumored at the time that star Sara Montiel was partly responsible for Ladislao Vajda's heart attack. She had recently married in Rome attorney Vicente Ramirez Olalla in a Catholic ceremony with the Pope's blessing but was soon having an affair with leading man Giancarlo Del Duca. The husband would sometimes show up during filming and add a lot of tension to the proceedings. According to sources the stress was too much for director Vadja. See more »
