Alan Rafkin was originally announced to direct.[1] Eventually TV director Barry Shear was selected to make his feature debut.[2] The plot involved a movie star (to be played by Terry-Thomas) who moved in with Jan and Dean and their friends to research a role.

Filming started August 2, 1965.[3] On August 5, the unit was filming background shots involving a train which crashed into a flat car; Barry Shear and Jan Berry were injured, along with several other crew.[4][5] The injuries to Jan and Shear were so severe that the movie was abandoned.[6]
