This movie is notable for a whip-fight between two women, which was not in the original novel but was already in the 1945 version. The scene caused a controversy, as the British Board of Film Classification wanted to impose a cut, and director Michael Winner refused to cut the notorious sequence, lobbying with such fellow director colleagues as Lindsay Anderson, Karel Reisz and John Schlesinger as well as novelist Kingsley Amis to defend retention of the scene. The scene stayed, but the film's release was delayed. See more »
Faye Dunaway was 42 when she starred in this as the young ingenue's sister (or friend?). Age 42 in the 1600's was elderly and the woman Dunaway's character was based on died at the age of 26. Of course, extensive face lifts hadn't been invented yet. Similarly, Alan Bates was 50 when this was filmed - so at least in the same age bracket as Dunaway. These were roles were meant for young people so it's jarring to see Dunaway's blurred close ups. The nudity was puerile and unnecessary.
