Merian C. Cooper started Seven Wonders of the World as the second Cinerama film after 1952's This Is Cinerama.[2] By September 1953, $1 million had already been spent and it was estimated that it would cost a further $1 million to complete.[2]

Stanley Warner Corp. acquired the rights to the film (and all Cinerama product) during production.[2]
