Producer Raymond Stross arrived in Hollywood in March 1953 seeking directors. Arthur Lubin signed and went to Britain to make the film the following month. Robert Morley was originally meant to be in the cast.
Arthur Lubin called the film "a disaster. Wilde wrote the script, he wanted to act, he wanted to direct. We had a producer who had never made a movie before and I was stuck in the middle of Italy with a bad script."
