In London, this film was the Royal Command Film Performance for 1965, with the Queen attending the premiere. James Mason was amongst the stars of the film presented to Her Majesty, and he was able to secure free tickets for the evening for his parents, who were both octogenarians by this time. However, they disliked the film so much that they discreetly left the cinema at the intermission - even though their son had not appeared on-screen yet.
