The film's working title was Mistress of Fashion. Some scenes were shot on location at Lake Arrowhead. The story was loosely based on the French bond scandal involving the Russian emigr Serge Alexandre Stavisky who, after the fraud was discovered, either committed suicide or was murdered in 1934. Alain Resnais directed a French film based on the scandal entitled Stavisky in 1974.
