Trivia

The only Blake Edwards -Peter Sellers collaboration that was not a Pink Panther film.
This film was improvised from a 56-page outline. Each scene was shot in sequence, and built upon the previous scene. To aid in this experiment, the film's producers had a video-camera tube attached to the Panavision camera and connected to an Ampex studio videotape machine, allowing the actors and crew to review what they had just filmed.
The interior of the mansion was a massive indoor set built at "The Lot" Studio, located at 1041 N. Formosa Avenue in West Hollywood, California. Not at the MGM studios in Culver City.
The unusual red sculpture on the wall behind the dining room table is a Mexican "árbol de la vida" (tree of life). They are still manufactured today.
Bakshi's car is a Morgan Sports Model, built from 1932-1939. Note that is has right-hand drive like all UK vehicles.
During the scene in which Peter Sellers wrecks the upstairs bathroom, the band downstairs can be heard playing "It Had Better Be Tonight," which was originally written and used both as a vocal and as an instrumental score in the first "Pink Panther" film.
