Tony Richardson's vociferous (and very personal) complaints about Ian Bannen and his behavior during the making of this film were perhaps a revenge for remarks the actor made at the time the film first appeared, when he told an interviewer that the plot had never made sense, that there had been rewrites of the script almost every day up to the end of filming and that these rewrites were usually presented to the actors hand-written on toilet paper.
