Two tragedies occurred during the making of this film. First, after just one day’s shooting, Peter Cushing had to pull out as his wife was taken seriously ill. She died a few days later, a loss from which the actor never recovered. His role in this film was taken by Andrew Keir. Then, secondly, a week before filming was due to end, the director, Seth Holt, died after suffering a heart attack. The film was completed by Michael Carreras. Valerie Leon had appeared in a couple of “Carry On” films, but was most noted for her appearance in the Hai Karate after-shave advertisements.

Details were complied viewing the actual film.
