Quotes

Alice Rico: Darling, I'm not blaming you. You had no choice.
Eddie Rico: Oh, but I did have a choice twenty years ago. When Kubik offered me that job, I should have thrown it in is face. He showed me a plush-lined rat hole, and I crawled in it and made it my home!

The synopsis mentions that the James Darren role was played by Bobby Darin. Wrong. The cast list has it right, but this synopsis for some reason has changed it to Bobby Darin. There is a difference between Bobby Darin and James Darren. This was probably some slip up by the writer who didn't bother to proofread his copy, and then it was then missed by an editor. But when you read a credit mistake like this of an actor in a pretty important role in a film and it goes uncorrected, then misinformation may be dispensed which may in turn distort the record. This could be a real problem in future generations where, for example, someone is doing research on this film.
