This was one of famed super producer Samuel Bronston's last productions. He had been responsible for a slew of big budget historical epics filmed in Spain (55 Days at Peking, El Cid, Fall of the Roman Empire). This might explain the Spanish production involvement. The movie was extravagantly filmed in 70mm format.

The movie is 112min, a shorter German theatrical version clocks at 94minutes. That shorter version was restored from a surviving 70mm print in 2016 and released on BluRay.
