The working title of this film was The Love Maniac. The film opens with the following written acknowledgment: "Twentieth Century-Fox wishes to thank the Department of Defense and the United States Army for their assistance in the production of this motion picture." According to a March 1959 Hollywood Reporter news item, Sheree North was initially cast as "Katey Mulligan," but had to withdraw from the part when she became pregnant.
