Though Cybill Shepherd only wears one costume in the movie, (a bias-cut white satin dress), the costume department made nine identical copies to facilitate filming.
Bette Davis was offered the role of Miss Froy. Davis told biographer and friend Whitney Stine ("I'd Love to Kiss You ... Conversations with Bette Davis"), "I loved May Whitty in the original, but I don't think the part is quite right for me. She should be a plump, sweet old lady." The part went to Angela Lansbury, who had co-starred with Davis in Tod auf dem Nil (1978).
This was the final Hammer film until Beyond the Rave (2008) 29 years later.
The picture was set in 1939 which was about one year after the original Eine Dame verschwindet (1938) had been released in 1938.
The character of Amanda played by Cybill Shepherd was modeled on screwball comedy actress Carole Lombard.
Jean Anderson was dubbed.
The film was made and released about forty-three years after its source novel "The Wheel Spins" by Ethel Lina White had been first published in 1936.
When first announced, George Segal and Tatum O'Neal were the intended stars.
