Director Michael Winner once said how he wanted to make this movie ever since he was a boy and saw The Wicked Lady (1945). He felt the first adaptation deserved better, as it suffered from being studio bound, with fake trees and painted backdrops. See more »
[about to be hanged]
My friends, I don't care whether you're for me or against me. All that matters is that you've come her today in your thousands to give me a grand send off. To you lovely ladies, don't throw your love, your caresses, your tears on villains like me. Save them for a man who's worth it. An honest, faithful man. If you can find one!

UK censor James Ferman requested cuts for the UK cinema version to the infamous horse-whip fight between Faye Dunaway and Marina Sirtis claiming that shots of whipped breasts should not be passed by the BBFC. However he was overruled following protests by Michael Winner, who was supported by Kingsley Amis and Karel Reisz (among others) after they viewed a private showing of the film. Following the introduction of the 1984 Video Recordings Act Ferman got his wish and the scene was edited by 13 secs for the 1987 VCI video release. Those cuts were waived for the 2016 video release.

Heavy handed adventure with Faye (who followed up Mommie Dearest with this) robbing stage coaches in full period costume. The production is pretty decent, as is the cast, but the film is so woefully over-the-top that you just want to slap director Michael Winner sometimes. What could have been. And that nudity thrown in for no apparent reason is absurd. The scene where Faye whips the clothes off the wife of her lover at his funeral is classic camp, however. Best performance is given by Denholm Elliott, who plays Faye's put-upon husband. This is in the same league as the even more preposterous Mata-Hari...which even shares co-star Oliver Tobias! This one is good for a few laughs.
