Iain F. McAsh, “Take 1: People in Camera — BOLD AS BRASS,” Films on Screen and Video vol. 5, no. 2,
February 1985, pp. 22–23:

I have already looked at locations and lots of English castles, but it would be very expensive to make. I would have liked to have lived in those days. You either lived in a castle and were very rich, or in a kitchen and were very poor. In fact, I think I have lived in a previous life. I have a very precise memory for details from those earlier times.”
