I thoroughly disapprove of duels. If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • In the opening scenes, Paulette and Louise mention that Maurice has been sold to Cartier and is bound for the Americas. This would make the film set in the year 1534, the year Jacques Cartier sailed to North America.
  • The portrait of Drew Barrymore's character (which is painted by Leonardo Da Vinci in the film) is actually modeled after another Da Vinci Work, "La Scapigliata".
  • The Mona Lisa was painted on wooden panel, so it would be impossible to roll it up into a tube.
  • At the start of the film when the [?] Brothers Grimm are talking to the queen about the many different versions of the Cinderella story they mention that in some versions the slippers she wears to the ball are fur rather than glass. This refers to Charles Perrault's version of the story, which was the first to introduce the glass slipper (which in French is "pantoufle de verre"), and how some people believe it was actually an misinterpretation of the words for a fur slipper (pantoufle de vair).
  • When Danielle is swimming in the lake, she is using the inverted breaststroke. It was popular in medieval and Renaissance Europe, and is still commonly taught as a survival stroke. In Australia, it is called the "Survival Backstroke."
  • As depicted in the film, the real [?] Leonardo da Vinci kept the Mona Lisa with him all the time until his death.
  • King Francois I of France (called Francis in the movie) bought the Mona Lisa for 4000 ecus.
  • The pale blue dress Danielle wears the day she and Henry visit the monastery is the exact same dress Marguerite refused to wear to the ball because "fifty other girls will be wearing the exact same color."
