The film's working titles were A Coffin for Dimitrios and A Mask for Dimitrios. Composer Jerome Moross' name was misspelled as "Morross" in the onscreen credits. The film begins with the following written foreword: "For money, some men will allow the innocent to hang. They will turn traitor...they will lie, cheat, steal...they will kill. They will appear brilliant, charming, generous. But they are deadly. SUCH A MAN WAS DIMITRIOS." This film marked Zachary Scott's motion picture debut. Hollywood Reporter news items add the following information about the production: Former silent film star Pola Negri was considered for a part and Faye Emerson replaced Nancy Coleman in the role of "Irana." In 1966, Seven Arts planned to remake the film as a vehicle for Rock Hudson, but that film was never produced.
