Production began in Italy.
However, problems with the sea battle shoot caused the whole production to return to Los Angeles.
The chariot race was shot on an empty lot at the corner of Venice and La Cienega. A total of 42 cameras were used on the shoot, along with thousands of extras, and many notables from other Hollywood studios.
