Shooting began on May 3 1967. After work on May 8 Davis made her complaint about Rakoff using television techniques to mark out the actors' moves and demanded his replacement. She then refused to turn up for work for the next two days causing resentment among the cast who liked Rakoff. Davis thus cost the production six days of unusable footage and two days where production was at a standstill. See more »

It's highly unlikely that anyone nowadays would remember seeing the original London stage play with Mona Washbourne in the Bette Davis part. However, those who did so will tell you that Mona was far more effective in the main role than Bette, who just flew over to the UK to do her Big Hollywood Movie Star thing. Most of the rest of the cast were in the original stage production so just give their theatre performances. Indeed, the play's origins are emphasised throughout by the lack of any background music. This, plus the lack of any kind of filmic "style", makes for a disappointing movie, though Bette's fans will doubtless relish her occasional bravura moments.
