Did You Know?

Trivia:
Sir William Walker, a real historical figure portrayed in this film by Marlon Brando, was neither British nor knighted. Walker was an American adventurer, and his title of "sir" was one he adopted on his own.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Looking through his spyglass, Sir William can see Jose Delores up close. Later, when he hands the glass to a British officer the view is much more distant. Spyglasses of that era (1850s) would have had 3X-6x magnification. The extreme close up view would be impossible.See more »
Quotes:
Sir William Walker:Gentlemen, let me ask you a question. Now, my metaphor may seem a trifle impertinent, but I think it's very much to the point. Which do you prefer - or should I say, which do you find more convenient - a wife, or one of these mulatto girls? No, no, please don't misunderstand: I am talking strictly in terms of economics...

Underrated great film., 22 July 2001
Author: W. Jones

True, Brando walks away with every scene he's in- but when doesn't he?

The other actors are clearly non-pros, which gives it at times the feel of a documentary, and at times the feel of a bad student film, and yet the depth of the topic rises above these minor quibles. It's a great film that should be seen by every social studies class, it has much to say and it says it well. Highly recommended.
