Exteriors at 141 S. Carolwood Drive in Holmby Hills were used for the chateau owned by the Count Contini character. Built in 1936 the estate was known as 'Owlwood'. Co-founder of 20th Century Fox Studios 'Joseph Schenck', Tony Curtis and Sonny Bono & his then wife Cher are some of the famous who have owned the estate over the years. At the time 'The Wrecking Crew' was made the place was owned by Tony Curtis who was friends with Dean Martin and Sharon Tate both of whom starred in the film. See more »

The best of the four Matt Helm films featuring the most entertaining plot, and the greatest number of beautiful women.Dean is funny as hell as usual, but it's Sharon's film all the way. Revealing a naturally funny comic ability, Sharon is an adorable doll, clad in unbecoming clothes and non-flattering eye glasses, before revealing the legendary Tate beauty in the memorable final scene. This film, along with Valley of the Dolls, revels the enormous potential of the tragic beauty.All in all, a good show.
