Loosely based on the events surrounding the construction of the Suez Canal, the film stirred controversy upon its release when the descendants of main characters Matthieu and Ferdinand de Lesseps unsuccessfully sued the studio for libel. With all the elaborate costuming, special effects, and production costs typical of a Zanuck picture, its cinematic qualities do their best to offset what can only be called a very unique take on historical accuracy.Nominated for the Academy Awards for Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, and Best Sound Recording. Power and Annabella were married shortly after the film's release.
