Movie Trivia:
  • The falling inmate's scream at the beginning of the movie was from one of the falling sailors in King Kong (1933)
  • The dress Anna Lee is wearing as she mounts her horse is the one Vivien Leigh made from the curtains in Gone with the Wind (1939).
  • Contrary to popular belief the film was never banned in the UK. However despite some TV showings it was never submitted to the BBFC until 1998 where it received an uncut video PG video certificate.
  • In one of the street scenes, a flower seller is heard calling. "Lavender, sweet blooming lavender,/ Six bunches a penny today, /Lavender, sweet blooming lavender,/ Ladies buy it while you may." This is an actual old street cry from London.
  • The comment Sims makes to Nell about the inmates, "Fierce as wild bulls, untameable as flies, these have oft from strangers' side snatched rapiers suddenly and done much harm", is a quote from the play, The Honest Whore by Thomas Dekker and Thomas Middleton
