Best known for his role as Jedediah Leland in Orson Welles' Citizen Kane and Holly Martins in The Third Man, Joseph Cotten was a leading actor in Hollywood in his youth; however, due to age, Cotten quickly found himself being given minor roles in US films starting in the 1960's. As a result, Cotten went overseas to star in several Italian and German pictures. In 1969, Cotten, his wife Patricia Medina, and actor Cesar Romero were all cast in the film Latitude Zero, which was to be a Japanese American co-production. Unfortunately, upon the actors' arrival in Japan, American producer Don Sharp pulled out of the project, and with him most of the financing. Toho, stuck with three American actors, had to drastically cut the film's budget, and would have to pay the three after the film was finished. After a week of negotiation, the three actors agreed in placing their faith in Toho, that payment would be given after the film was completed, and work on the picture commenced.
