Michael Forest got cast out of pure chance. While leaving his ex-wife's house in the Hollywood Hills, Forest encountered Andrew Marton who happened to be driving by. Martone pulled over and asked him if he'd like to do a project in Africa, "with the Arabs". Forest was quickly cast in a much larger role but found the smaller role of Khalid much more interesting, plus the large gaps in his character's shooting schedule allowed him to periodically return to Rome to do voice-dubbing work while the rest of the cast had to stay in Morocco and Libya for a full year.

I must say that Anthony Quinn is one of the greatest actors of the 20th century.
The movie is about the birth of Islam in the 6th century.
Moustapha Akkad did a great job with this picture. The locations where very good, good actors, beautiful photographed by Jack Hildyard (he was also director of photography in "the bridge on the river kwai"), and the beautiful music who was conducted by Maurice Jarre!! I must say the music in this movie is one of the best film scores in the film history!!
one last thing: Moustapha Akkad, I like your 2 epic movies very well but I don't understand why you have not make a movie since 1981?? You are a great director but you should be make more movies!
