According to director Just Jaeckin the final temple location of the film was actually shot on one stage with "roll-away" walls that were dressed and rearranged before each scene to give the appearance of many different rooms. See more »
Many of the closing-trap walls in the end sequence can be seen to stop just shy of the lens while the grinding-stone sound effects continue. See more »

Actually based on characters created by John Willie. In the 1940s, John Willie, (aka John Coutts), created an obscure fetish magazine called Bizarre and produced four cartoon serials, of which "The Adventures of Sweet Gwendoline" was best known. It is silly, dirivetive, and totally camp. If you llike the "old style D.I.D. (damsel in distress) films, this takes it to Hef's corner, with enough fetish material to please those who liek it, and enough to startle those who have never...... Can't wait for the DVD! (this is based on the cable version)
