Facts about

The art nouveau house featured in the movie was designed by the same architect, Hector Guimard, who designed the famous Paris Metro stations. It was demolished four years after the movie was made.
While rehearsing his lines about people cheating on each other in the hotel, French actor Jacques Balutin suddenly saw Peter O'Toole unexpectedly roar with laughter. Asking Peter Sellers to join them, O'Toole insisted that he did it one more time. Obliging to his request, his performance produced the same hysterical effect.
