Facts about

Some authors have alleged the Guy Rolfe role at first was earmarked for Peter Cushing.
The military men of the story are not part of the British army but the East India Company, which virtually ruled India for two centuries. With roots in the 16th Century, the company was granted a monopoly from 1708 to 1857, when it became the largest global trader in the world, dealing with cotton, silk, indigo, and even opium.
All scenes shot in the marketplace/village were shot at Bray Studios on the revamped set that was constructed for Horror of Dracula. Once this film ("Stranglers") was completed in 1959, the set was completely torn down. The sequences where 'Guy Rolfe''s character goes to meet Allan Cuthbertson's character, the capture of two of the thuggees in the process, and the caravan sequences were shot at the sand and gravel quarry in Gerrard's Cross, Buckinghamshire (England). The tiger hunt and the scene where Rolfe's character finds more grave sites was filmed at the Callow Hill Sandpits in Virginia Water, Egham in Surrey.
