At the height of his fame, Oscar Wilde angers the Marquis of Queensberry by having what is (correctly) believed to be a romantic relationship with Queensberry's son Lord Alfred Douglas ("Bosie"), who is twenty years Wilde's junior. When Queensberry slanders Wilde, the artist decides to take the matt…

Having just finished reading two major works on Wilde, I can verify that this movie takes great care to adhere to historical accuracy in covering the relationship between Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas ("Bosie"), as well as Wilde's trials for "gross indecency." Great reliance is placed on authentic materials such as letters and trial transcripts.
Nearly a lifetime ago a legend walked the streets of London. His name was Oscar Wilde. His story was whispered over polite tea-cups and spat out in vulgar black banner headlines. To some he was a joke in bad taste, to others he was a human tragedy. Whatever they thought of him, they couldn't ignore him. And it took another lifetime to find the courage to put his story on the screen. So important is his story that the world was searched to find actors capable of enacting this great personal tragedy. Such world greats as Peter Finch, Yvonne Mitchell, James Mason, Nigel Patrick and a host of others. So big is this story it had to be in Technirama and Techinicolor.

- As the film was being made against the clock in order to beat 奥斯卡·王尔德 (1960) to cinemas, most scenes had to be filmed in one take. However, after the first take of the scene where the Marquis of Queensberry (莱昂内尔·杰弗里斯) strikes his son, Lord Alfred Douglas (约翰·弗拉瑟), Fraser felt his reaction lacked the required passion. He asked director 肯·休斯 for another take, which Hughes agreed to, with some reluctance. As the shot of Fraser's reaction was being set up again, Jeffries asked Fraser if he should hit Fraser for real. After a moment of hesitation, Fraser agreed, and Jeffries smacked him with full force, with Fraser's stunned reaction to the slap perfectly captured on screen.
- The editor, Geoffrey Foot had to work fast on "审判奥斯卡·王尔德 (1960)" as another film about Wilde, "奥斯卡·王尔德 (1960)," was being made at the same time. At one point, the composer Ron Goodwin was recording music before scenes were filmed. Foot still edited the score flawlessly. From start to finish, the picture was made in nine weeks.
- The producers, 欧文·艾伦 and 艾伯特 took a chance and financed the film themselves. The film dealt with 奥斯卡·王尔德's homosexuality, so very few theaters would play the film. It almost put the producers to bankruptcy, and broke up the partnership between them, but in Europe it was a great artistic success and won several foreign awards. This also ended Warwick Films - Broccoli's falling out with Allen (which also included optioning the rights to the 伊恩·弗莱明's James Bond novels) and resulted in the establishment of Eon Productions where he partnered with 哈里·萨尔兹曼 (who held the option rights) - the result was a successful franchise (James Bond) which has lasted for over 50 years.
