The working title of the film was The Blessing. According to an August 1951 Daily Variety news item, British producer Alexander Korda engaged writer Nancy Mitford to do a treatment based on an idea he supplied. Dissatisfied with the resulting treatment, Korda approved of Mitford's request to turn the work into a novel, which became The Blessing. A May 1954 Los Angeles Times news item stated that Korda maintained rights to the property through 1954 and intended to produce the film. A Hollywood Reporter news item announced that M-G-M purchased the film rights in March 1956. According to a Hollywood Reporter item in January 1958, Sidney Franklin was assigned to co-produce the film with Karl Tunberg, who would write the screenplay to be directed by Franklin. In June 1958, Franklin left M-G-M after many years with the studio, and Jean Negulesco took over as director. The film was shot on location in London and Paris.
