Price wears this costume throughout most of the film, probably due to the low budget of the production. The film was filmed in France and distributed in the USA by Republic.
In "The Errol Flynn Blog" there is an extensive article about the film, including this:
"The production also had problems with the costumes. Making those for the male actors in France would have taken too long, so they were finally ordered from Britain. The search for doubles for the unusually tall gentlemen Flynn and Price was diffcult as well: in the end, blocks of wood had to be put under the feet of the doubles…"
I was very lucky to be able to screen match the costume, down to the details. It was purchased as being from an "unknown production" at a Bonhams, UK, auction. The costume had suffered some changes, mainly the shortening of the cuffs, removal of buttons on the front, sides and back and the hem at the front was "rounded out" where it had been straight.
Hoping to find a better copy of this extremely elusive film, in order to obtain better screen-captures.
