Trivia: The Khyber Pass is actually Snowdonia in Wales. All of the rest of the production was filmed at Pinewood Studios in London.

Trivia: The role of Captain Keene (portrayed by Roy Castle) was originally intended for Carry On regular Jim Dale.

Trivia: During the dinner scene towards the end of the film, a piece of plaster falls from the ceiling onto Lady Ruff Diamond who says, "Oh dear! I seem to have got a little plastered!" Joan Sims ad-libbed this line.

Continuity mistake: During the bombardment of the British Consulate, there are several continuity errors, including a self-repairing window and blind situated behind the piano. And it cannot be put down to the nature of the film because several errors have been carefully avoided.
