2. Production

Distributors in 21 countries put up 65% of the $1.8 million budget which was actually $2.7 million but Heston and Snell deferred their fees. A bank put up the remainder 35%. Heston asked Orson Welles to direct, but Welles turned it down, so he decided to do it himself.

The film was shot in Spain. Heston re-used leftover footage of the sea battle from his 1959 film Ben-Hur.

Charlton Heston had played Mark Antony in two previous Shakespearean films, both adaptations of Julius Caesar, the first in 1950, the second in 1970 also produced by Peter Snell.
