Did You Know?

This film took nearly eighteen months to get to Britain and was shown (in an abbreviated version) in the lower half of a double-bill with "A Fistful Of Dollars". It was not press-shown or given much publicity, but the popularity of the Clint Eastwood film meant that it was widely seen, and it gradually built up a cult following. It was eventually televised in its full version.See more »
Continuity: When Barbara Ann inscribes her name in cement near beginning of film, she writes the second R in first name twice due to inconsistency in long shot and closeup.See more »
Bob Barnard:[Forbidding her to take a screen test] Just listen, Barbara Ann: you promised to love, honor and obey me!
Barbara Ann:Listen, I may have been a little hysterical at the ceremony, but I never said anything as *dumb* as that!

A TRULY brilliant satire on American culture., 17 April 1999
Author: Joseph Harder from warren michigan

The early nineteen sixties were the great age of black comic satire in American cinema. Everyone remembers Doctor Strangelove and The Nutty Professor and Lolita and One Two Three and The Loved One.In a sense, this neglected masterpiece was the culmination. Even though Axelrod wasn't a genius like Kubrick or Wilder, this film hits its target just as unerringly. Think of it as a darker, much more savage Rushmore, in which almost all the false Gods of our civilization - phony preachers, psychoanalysis, public "education",consumerism, youth 'culture',- are weighed in the scales and found wanting. Roddy Mcdowall and Tuesday Weld give two of the great comic perfomances. Indeed, Mcdowall is inspirational to any would-be anarchist. Should be seen - and discussed - more often. Scorsese once listed this film among his "guilty pleasures": He has nothing to be guilty about-this is wonderful
