Frederick Stafford did not reprise his role as he was filming Alfred Hitchcock's Topaz and was replaced by John Gavin. The film used an idea of having the hero undergo plastic surgery to fool his enemies, an idea discarded by the film On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969) that was being filmed at the same time.
The film was shot in Rome and Tunisia. It was known during production as No Roses for Robert.
The film was only a moderate success at the box office in France – the 40th most popular film of the year.
