Prior to the departure of the cast, and the majority of the crew to Italy, sixteen Clydesdale horses, accompanied by eight grooms, were led into three large trailers, and began a long overland trip from England to filming locations in the Abruzzi Mountains in central Italy. Before boarding the Dover ferry, that would transport the equines to France, a passport for each horse had to be presented, which caused a sensation at the customs crossing point, as each passport contained two photos, one a "before make-up" shot, and one an "after make-up" shot.

A much underrated gem this terrific children's fantasy picture boasts several fantastic performances from it then unknown cast, several of whom used it as a springboard to go on to become major Hollywood and TV stars later in their careers. Excellent special effects for the time in hindsight and with beautiful art direction, this film truly deserves to be dug out and dusted off and shown the respect it deserves. Admittedly the damsel in distress running away endlessly from the evil baddie is a bit tiring but the battle sequences are genuinely rousing and brilliantly directed. A true British classic!
