Principal Photography was started in May 2019, and ended seven weeks later on June 25, 2019.
Filming was done in Paris and other locations on Ile-de-France. Finally, the filming ended in Nice, France.
Fernande Grudet (or better known as Madame Claude) was one of Paris' most powerful and affluent brothel keepers in France during the 1960s.
Her clientele included celebrities, politicians and mafia members. She set up Paris's most exclusive network for prostitution. Grudet named John F. Kennedy (Shah of Iran), and Gianna Agnelli, the ex-head of Fiat.
Despite her protection as an informant for the police, her empire began to crumble around her when the French judge Jean-Louis Bruguière began dismantling everything she had built. Madame Claude ran to Los Angeles after being pursued by 11 million francs in unpaid taxes.
Madame Claude was later released from prison and returned to France for a four-month sentence. After her release from prison, she would again attempt to set up a new prostitution ring but was caught and sentenced to a term in Fleury-Mérogis Prison.
At 92 years old, the former Madame died in Nice on December 19, 2015.
