Did You Know?
- The original camera negative was saved from a fire in 1993, just before a massive nitrate explosion destroyed the negatives of many other films.
- Novelists Nancy Mitford and Evelyn Waugh were both hired to work on drafts of the script at different points in time, though none of their edits made it to the shooting script.
- Alec Guinness was originally only offered four of the eight roles he plays in the film, but insisted on playing all of them himself.
