Trivia
The film's failure was largely blamed on the casting of Mark Lester, who at 18 was nine years older than King Edward VI was at the time of his accession to the throne. Lester's performance in the dual title roles was heavily criticized. However, there were also complaints that the movie was "too Americanized".
