Facts about

Claudette Colbert fought with director Anatole Litvak throughout most of the filming. Her main problem was with Litvak's cinematographer, Charles Lang. Colbert, famous for demanding that when she was photographed from the side it be only the right side, didn't feel that Lang was photographing her according to her wishes, and demanded that he be fired. Litvak refused, setting off almost constant battling between the two that lasted the entire length of shooting.
Claudette Colbert became ill during production, causing the film to fall behind schedule.
The musical production of "Tovarich" opened at the Broadway Theater in New York City on March 18, 1963 and ran for 264 performances. The show starred Jean-Pierre Aumont and Vivien Leigh who won the 1963 Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical.
