The film starred Michael Wilding, Ingrid Bergman, Joseph Cotten, and Margaret Leighton.

It is believed that the audience thought Under Capricorn was going to be a thriller, which it was not—it was a domestic love triangle with a few thriller elements thrown in—which apparently led to its box office failure. However, the public reception of the film may not have been helped by the revelation in 1949 of Bergman's illicit relationship with — and subsequent pregnancy by — Italian film director Roberto Rossellini.
