The working title of this film was Arsene Lupin. According to Hollywood Reporter news items, in May 1994 Universal made a deal with M-G-M to use the "Arsene Lupin" character and title. This was the American film debut of Hungarian actor Charles Korvin, who had previously appeared on the Broadway stage. Korvin, whose real first name was Geza, was listed in Hollywood Reporter production charts and news items as "George Korvin."
