The film was shot in Mexico. In an interview, Noreen Nash
told how star Turhan Bey
was dating actress Linda Christian
during production. Apparently a former President of Mexico was also interested in Christian and didn't want any competition, because one day Bey went to producer Bryan Foy
and told him that his life had been threatened and he had to get out of the country fast. So Foy had the script rewritten to have Bey's character killed off right away so Bey could get out of Mexico; that's why his character disappears so suddenly and Nash's character is seen crying about his unexpected death.
