Although Hammer do not appear in the credits, this was clearly a Hammer Production. Not only was it filmed at Bray Studios, but many of the production crew were Hammer faithfuls, and all but one of the credited cast (Andrew Crawford) had worked (or were to work) for the company in a combined total of 28 other productions.

Alan Wheatley played the Sheriff of Nottingham in ITC’s series “The Adventures of Robin Hood” (1960’s), he also played Temmosus in BBC TV’s Doctor Who (1964), becoming the first character to be killed by a Dalek!

Music composer Mikis Theodorakis also produced the score for Twentieth Century Fox’s 1964 film “Zorba the Greek”.
