Trivia

Schonbrunn Palace represents Paris' Louvre and Fontainbleau, as well as the King's bedchamber, Marie-Therese's bedroom-anteroom, and the Royal Dining Room. The palace, with its exquisite wood carvings, tapestries, and art work, was constructed by Emperor Joseph I about 1700 and renovated by Queen Marie-Therese in 1740. Then in 1805, Napoléon Bonaparte used the palace for his headquarters. The grand ballrooms were still the settings for formal social events and state functions and were open during the day for public viewing. See more »

sexed-up version, cut in US
4 January 2006 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

In many ways, this is an unnecessary re-telling of a story we have seen realized many times before (and since), and often filmed better. It was certainly not Beau Bridges's finest hour.

What was unusual and certainly the major selling point of the film was that the leading ladies (Andress and Kristel) would shed their clothes on quite a few occasions. As this film's US rating is PG and as the American running time is 12 minutes shorter than the British 15-rated release (which is the one I saw) it is highly likely that most if not all nudity was cut from the American version. Which is a shame as this is the only proper reason to watch this film.
