Trivia

The credited director - Ladislao Vajda - died after a month of work in Barcelona. The assistant director Luis María Delgado had to face the bigger part of the shooting. Even so, Delgado refused to be credited as director, presumingly to pay tribute to his Spanish-Hungarian master Vajda. See more »
