Filming began in November 1966. Knowing that local censors would prohibit filming, Towers gave them a copy of Abe Lincoln in Illinois and hired an actor to walk around the set dressed like Abraham Lincoln in case the censors dropped by. According to Price in a 1984 interview, he had been signed on to the project without full knowledge of what the film would be about. After his scenes were shot, "Martha Hyer and I were led off... so we went to visit on the set and we found that they were remaking all of the scenes we'd been in, but a pornographic version of it." He added, "I never got to see it". The Chicago Tribune called the film "not bad enough to be good... bargain basement backfire, discount Price". The New York Times described the film as containing "routine sleuthing, double-crossing and chasing". List of American films of 1967 The House of 1,000 Dolls on IMDb
