Cast notes:

  • The role of Boris Lermontov, played by Anton Walbrook, was inspired in part by Sergei Diaghilev, the impresario who founded the Ballets Russes,[7] although there are also aspects about him drawn from the personalities of producer J. Arthur Rank and even director Michael Powell himself.[4]
