Mel Ferrer and wife Audrey Hepburn saw Juliette Gréco singing in a Paris nightclub, and they introduced her to Darryl F. Zanuck. He was so taken with her that he cast her in the film and had her part enlarged -- and reportedly began a relationship with her. She went on to star in two additional Zanuck productions. Mel Ferrer had actually appeared with Juliette Gréco in Elena and Her Men (1956) the previous year. See more »

I should have thought you'd have loved being a steer, Robert.
What do you mean, Mike?
Well, they lead a sort of quiet life. They never say anything important, and they're always hanging around. I should have thought you'd have enjoyed that. Aren't you going to say anything?
Lady Brett Ashley:
Oh, shut up, Mike!

It was great to see 2 of Hollywood's film idols on a film together. Tyrone did look tired in this movie. Errol and Eddie Albert as two drunks were very funny. Tyrone, as always, was great as a jaded WWI veteran. Ava Gardner was also very interesting to watch and I thought she played her character very well. The bullfighting was very graphic for its time, however, the actor who played the bullfighter couldn't act.
