The cinema seen in the opening shot of this movie is ABC's Ritz, Edgware, the nearest ABC theatre to Elstree Studios. It has clearly been newly whitewashed for the occasion, and the poster for Escape from Fort Bravo (1953) visible on the right-hand wall dates it to July 1954 when that movie played the ABC circuit. The subsequent interior shots are not the Ritz, however. The shot of the screen and proscenium surround look like a studio model (the Ritz was an atmospheric design), while the stars of the movie sitting in the rear stalls is a studio set.
