Production Notes:

  • James Mason won the National Board of Review Best Actor Award in 1953 for reprising his role as Rommel in the film. He first played the german field marshal in THE DESERT FOX (1951).
  • This was only the second American film for Welsh actor Richard Burton; his first was MY COUSIN RACHEL (1952).
  • Director Robert Wise said the film "would be a close second to THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL as my favorite in the Fox period."
  • The film's authentic look is remarkable, considering it was not shot in the North African desert but in the small town of Borrego Springs, California, just a short drive from Palm Springs.
