The film was shot at Shepperton Studios in March 1962.[3] George Raft and Maxie Rosembloom were old friends; Raft even once owned a share in Rosembloom when the latter was a boxer.[4]

Director Don Sharp later recalled "at the time there was a fashion for these 'products'. They were made for a double purpose: as a pilot episode for a TV series; if that failed, for release as a B movie supporting the main feature. Very few of them even made the grade."[2]

Sharp says he "got on very well with George - the complete Hollywood pro. He was amiable, always ribbing Maxie; constantly doing his coin-flipping act; and likely at any moment to break into a few dance steps - for no particular reason. There is a photo of me and my camera operator on the camera dolly with George doing the grip's job and pushing it because, he said, he always wanted a real job."[2]
