ProductionEdit

Meyer shot the film in Europe after completing his adaptation of Fanny Hill. According to Roger Ebert, Meyer "concealed a 16-mm camera in a suitcase and got footage in the red-light districts of Paris, Amsterdam and elsewhere." Meyer later felt the suitcase camera was unhandy and difficult to use, and that he would not recommend making a film in that way again."[3]
