Trivia

Director Edward Dmytryk originally wanted to cast Tippi Hedren in the part of Shela, but Hedren was under a personal contract with Alfred Hitchcock who told Dmytryk she was not available. Diane Baker, who had played opposite Hedren in Hitchcock's Marnie (1964), took over the role.

During pre-production, one of the producers was set to meet with Quincy Jones, but he didn't know Jones was black. The producer saw Jones for the first time and told him, "I'll be right back," and the producer left with the intention of bringing in a non-black composer for the film. Shortly after, Henry Mancini, a longtime personal friend of Jones, recommended him to the producer, thereby ensuring Jones getting hired to score the film.

The line spoken by Lester, 'you can't be alive in Barbados and dead in New York at the same time', is paraphrased from a line in the Pat Novak For Hire radio program entitled Rubin Callaway's Pictures, with Detroit in Pat Novak changed to Barbados in Mirage.
