Carlo Ponti, producer of ‘Doctor Zhivago’, wanted to shoot in the old USSR, but the government declined his request. After visiting Yugoslavia, Finland and Sweden, he finally decided to shoot most of the film in Spain, because it gathered every need of the production perfectly: trains with steam locomotives, horses, horsemen, many extras, cinematographic studios close to the landscapes… Nevertheless, some scenes were shot in Finland, Canada and Cinecittá Studios in Roma.
