Notes:
Shot in Panavision. Color by Metrocolor The film cost $14,000,000 to produce and took 3 years to finish. It was director David Lean's 15th feature. Although he didn't receive screen credit for editing the film, David Lean supervised the cutting. Lean had actually worked as a professional editor. The bulk of the filming took place in northern Ireland, but due to poor weather, part of the shooting was done in South Africa.

Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "Today it looks like genius; as Lean's visionary leanings run off the hook with symbolic weather and flora..." - 03/01/2006 Uncut, p.134


"[A] marvel of pinpoint resolution and stable, saturated color." - 02/07/2006 New York Times, p.E4


4 stars out of 4 -- "[A] cinematic expression of romance against a harsh backdrop of nature, politics, and human cruelty....RYAN's picture-perfect style of filmmaking is a pleasure to revisit." - 04/01/2006 Premiere, p.102
