'Glenn Ford (I)' was 17 years older than Hope Lange. Despite this age gap, Ford outlived Lange by 20 years, passing away in 2006 at age 90, three years after Lange died in 2003 at age 70. Ricardo Montalban was 13 years older than Lange, and also outlived her, in his case by 18 years, passing away in 2009 at age 88. Of the four actors portraying the two couples, Ulla Jacobsson had the shortest lifespan, passing away in 1982 at age 53. See more »
When Millie and Davis first go to the lookout where winning drivers are commemorated, Mille reads out some of the drivers' names. One of these is 'Brabham", but she mispronounces the name with a long 'a' as 'Braybham' rather than with a short 'a' as in 'cat'. See more »
What surprise(s)? Plenty. How about Telly Savalas playing an effeminate guardian? How about Ricardo Montalban playing a klutz! This movie has all that and then some. Hope Lange is perfect as the rebellious young girl who doesn't want to be stereotyped (this was pretty racy for the 50s mind you), and Glenn Ford totally disarmed by his circumstance and his company.
Great chemistry between the players especially between Charles Boyer and Montalban, who just doesn't seem like he's ever going to play up to his title...this is really funny.
A movie I can watch again and again.
