Because of its then-shocking subject matter, this film was given a pre-rating advisory of restricted by the MPAA, prohibiting anyone under the age of 18 from attending. This was pre-rating equivalent of an X (later NC-17) rating. By today's standards, the film is so tame that, when shown on Turner Classic Movies, it's rated TV-PG. See more »
During the pot-smoking scene, there is one shot in which Chance is seen looking to his right with the cigarette in his mouth. We cut to another angle as Alexandra flops down on the bed, and now Chance has no cigarette and his head is leaned straight back on the mattress. 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.
