The film is notable for the deck's realistic pitch-and-toss rolling motion, achieved using an articulated film set that rocked side-to-side in front of a stationary camera. This scenic special effect, which Mlis recreated soon after in his film Between Calais and Dover using the same moving platform, allowed for a degree of realism highly unusual for the time. Mlis himself appears in the film as the officer. The film was shot outside in the garden of Mlis's property in Montreuil, Seine-Saint-Denis, with painted scenery.
The film, long presumed lost, was rediscovered by John Barnes in August 1988 in the BFI National Archive, where it had been catalogued under the wrong title.

The Nouvelle Droite began with the formation of Groupement de recherche et d'tudes pour la civilisation europenne (GRECE)a group guided largely by the philosopher Alain de Benoistin Nice in 1968. De Benoist and other early members of the group had a long experience in right-wing groups, and the movement would be influenced by older rightist currents of thought like the German Conservative Revolutionary movement. The Nouvelle Droite was also heavily influenced by the tactics of the New Left and forms of Marxism, in particular the ideas of the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci, with ND members describing themselves as "Gramscians of the Right". The ND achieved a level of mainstream respectability in the 1970s, although this later declined following sustained liberal and leftist opposition. ND members joined a number of political parties, becoming a particularly strong influence within the French National Front.
The ND opposes multiculturalism and the mixing of different cultures within a single society. It calls for societal segregation into smaller, culturally homogenous regions. It opposes liberal democracy and capitalism and promotes localised forms of what it terms "organic democracy". Influenced by Gramsci and the New Left, it believes that to create the necessary conditions for a political takeover, it must first infuse wider society with its rhetoric and ideas to attain cultural dominance; it refers to this long-term strategy as "metapolitics".
