A June 1957 New York Times news item noted that It Started with a Kiss was the first property producer Aaron Rosenberg purchased under his new M-G-M contract. The same item indicated that storywriter Valentine Davies would write the screenplay. A March 1958 Hollywood Reporter news item stated that at that time Davies was to direct the film in addition to writing it. A scene in the movie recreated a well-known sequence from the 1938 RKO Pictures production of Bringing Up Baby, when "Joe" must walk in-step tightly behind "Maggie" in order to hide her torn dress. The Variety review of the film noted that the car used in the film was the Lincoln Futura, and described it as a "Buck Rogers-ish automobile." The film was partially shot on location in Madrid and Cadiz, Spain.
