The editor, Geoffrey Foot had to work fast on The Trials of Oscar Wilde (1960) as another film about Wilde, Oscar Wilde (1960), was being made at the same time. At one point, the composer Ron Goodwin was recording music before scenes were filmed. Foot still edited the score flawlessly. From start to finish, the picture was made in nine weeks. See more »
After the Marquis of Queensberry left Wilde's home, Wilde (seated) embraced his wife. In one shot his left hand (on her arm) was level with his chin. Then on a change of camera, it was level with his eyes. See more »
I had heard of Oscar Wilde before but i didn't know who he was. I had seen the 1945 version of The picture of dorion Gray but i didn't know he wrote it. This movie has Wilde being put on trial for having homosexual relations, there's more to it but I'm too lazy to put it down. Peter Finch does a good job and James Mason is the main reason i wanted this, but i didn't know he was basically only in one long scene as the defense attorney.
