The Maharaja of Baroda is among the many financers of that project.
Early September 64 columnist Leonard Lyons knows: "Carroll Baker had a choice of movie roles for Joe Levine or for another studio at $40,000 more. She chose Levine because she felt a loyalty to the producer who'd given her her role in The Carpetbaggers. Levine heard of it, and decided that this loyalty should not go unrewarded. He phoned Jack Garfein, Miss Baker's husband, to accompany him to Harry Winston's, to choose a $50,000 diamond ring for Miss Baker.
