Director Lewis says he did the film "because it was three months in Rome on someone else's money" but that he felt Maibaum's script "was awful and I think I almost had nothing to do with him. My ex wife did the rewrite and off we went.[1]

Lewis says Ekberg was "very difficult" to work with but executive producer Martin Bergman refused to fire her. Lewis decided to fire her anyway but rehired her when she promised to behave which she did.[1] He also said Cornelia Sharpe needed a lot of takes, which caused friction with Omar Sharif who did not.[1]
