The film was originally known as Prince of Bagdad. Maureen O'Hara was announced as his "likely" co-star. Victor Mature was borrowed from 20th Century Fox. He made it after completing The Glory Brigade and before The Robe - however release was held up until after The Robe had been released.
Eventually Maureen O'Hara asked to be relieved of the assignment and her role was taken by Universal contract player Mari Blanchard.
