According to the book 'Bill Collins presents The Golden Years of Hollywood' by Bill Collins, "Apart from three or four large interiors, the film was shot entirely on location . . . The film's producer 'David l. Wolper', obtained permission to use the Davle Bridge, 24 kilometers south of Prague on the Ultava River.
