- During filming, Connery was encouraged by fellow members of the cast to complain to the film's director, Montgomery Tully, about his character's stutter. Not realising it was a practical joke, Tully apparently himself suffered from a similar handicap, and berated the young actor by allegedly replying, "Who the f-f-fuck do you think you are, L-L-Larry Olivier?"
