Trivia
The film's closing credits pay tribute to Commander B.S. Davies R.N., "...whose skill and courage at the helm of the 'Phoebe' contributed so much to the success of the mission" [as depicted in this film]. Davies was an Assistant Conservator at the Port Commissioners of Calcutta, India.

Originally the cast was to be a reunited Richard Burton, Roger Moore and Richard Harris formerly of The Wild Geese (1978), also by Euan Lloyd and Andrew V. McLaglen, with Burton playing the role of Lewis Pugh, which eventually went to Gregory Peck and Harris playing Bill Grice, which David Niven played. However, it was felt Harris was too young and Burton eventually refused (something he later allegedly regretted). Harris was still an option however, but was eventually vetoed by Peck, who wanted his The Guns of Navarone (1961) co-star Niven on board.
