MGM made the film in the wake of their success with Kim (1951). That film was written by Leon Gordon, who wrote and produced this.
The film was to have starred Stewart Granger and involve extensive location shooting in the Khyber Pass. Patricia Neal was to co star.
However eventually Peter Lawford was cast instead. Directing duties were given to Allen Davies of the Old Vic Company.
Filming started 28 April 1952.
Rogue's March was Lawford's last film under contract to MGM. The cast also included Lawford's father, Lieutenant General Sir Sidney Turing Barlow Lawford, who died of natural causes two days after the film's February 13, 1953 opening.
According to MGM records the film earned $379,000 in the US and Canada and $328,000 elsewhere, making a loss to the studio of $247,000.
