CastingEdit

The film featured the "accidental" cinematic debut of actress Hilda Aguirre; her father (José María Aguirre) was a friend of producer Gregorio Walerstein.[2] Aguirre's father had told the producer that he had a "half-crazy daughter who wanted to work in cinema."[2] The producer then set up an appointment with Aguirre, made her walk, laugh, and talk, closely observing her, and then told her: "You're hired for three years."[2] She started shooting her scenes in the film on November 1965.[2]

The film also featured Ricardo Carrión's "first role of importance."[3]
