It took producer Norman Rosemont several years to negotiate the rights. In December 1966 he announced he bought the rights from 20th Century Fox, who made the 1956 film version. Then Richard Rodgers objected, claiming Fox did not own all the rights.
The production was originally going to last for 90 minutes but Rosemont worried that he would not be able to keep the whole score and any of the plot, so he expanded it to two hours. Then in March 1967 the production was in the middle of rehearsals when it was picketed by the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. However the strike ended and taping was able to be finished by 18 April 1967. Filming took place at NBC's Burbank Studios.
The Los Angeles Times called it an "exceptional production".
