Footnotes

Director Michael Reeves wanted Donald Pleasence to play Matthew Hopkins, but “American-International Pictures,” the American distributor and co-financier of the film, insisted that Vincent Price play the title character, and Reeves grudgingly accepted. Price went on to regard his performance here as the finest of his horror movie career.
