After completing this movie, Peter Sellers was so convinced it was going to bomb, he convinced the producers to buy back his percentage share in the movie, thus depriving himself of a cut of the profits with the movie when it went on to be a hit.
The screaming woman sound used as a doorbell is Fay Wray's screams from King Kong (1933).
Peter Sellers reportedly played several practical jokes on the cast and crew during filming, including once calling Neil Simon up and imitating co-star Sir Alec Guinness and demanding a re-write of a key scene in the middle of the night. Neither Guinness nor Simon was amused.
