The was the last movie to be shot at the RKO Hollywood studio at 780 Gower Street. Filming took place between early September and early November 1956 and again during the week of January 8, 1957. After sitting on the shelf for over a year, Universal International picked up the distribution rights, and the feature finally went into wide release in Febbruary 1958 on a double bill with Day of the Badman (1958), a Universal International production starring Fred MacMurray. Janer Powell quipped in a 1987 "Films in Review" profile that Universal didn't release the film; they simply allowed it to "escape." Out of respect for RKO, who had not actually produced the film, but who had been its intended distributor, Universal left its original RKO logo intact on the beginning and end titles, and this is the way it's now seen on TCM.
According to director Mitchell Leisen, since this was the last film made at the RKO studio, a wrecking crew followed him around during shooting and, every time he wrapped a scene, the foreman of the wrecking crew asked him if he was absolutely finished with that set and wouldn't be needing it again. If Leisen said yes, the foreman called his crew in and they demolished the set as soon as Leisen was done with it.
