Trivia

Melina Mercouri refused to wear the high-waisted period costume originally designed for her character, so all of her dresses were redesigned to give them a more familiar 1950s silhouette - although the rest of the cast duly wore Regency clothing. See more »

Mercouri and McGoohan make the social melodrama interesting
26 September 2020 | by JuguAbrahamSee all my reviews

Good screen presence of Melina Mercouri and Patrick McGoohan. A typical melodrama that an average viewer would like. A typical Losey film accentuating the class differences and wealth-related social differences. Mercouri slipped into the role of a gypsy with elan. Cinematographer Jack Hildyard's indoor photography was unusually below par with lights on as candles were doused. I guess he won fame for his outdoor work in films such as "The Bridge on the River Kwai."
