The film is set in the Gulf coast town of "St. Cloud," which is the name of an actual inland town in central Florida. However, Chance and the Princess are shown driving out of Florida at the beginning of the film, so the movie is not set in that state. It seems most likely that "St. Cloud" is a fictional town, intended to stand in for a coastal location in Mississippi or Louisiana. See more »
Gerladine Page is truly magnificent in this picture. A great actress who died way too early. Her portrait of the drunk doped out film actress is amazing. Newmna, Begley, Knight are very good indeed but it is Page who is truly great. I never saw her give a bad performance. Thank goodness she won an Oscar just before she died. It was richly deserved.
