Who's That Knocking at My Door (1967) Poster

Trivia

There is no question mark in the title "Who's That Knocking at My Door." Having a question mark in the title of a movie is considered bad luck in the industry.
Harvey Keitel's first credited screen role. He would go on to work with director Martin Scorsese 4 more times.
In order to get distribution for his film, Martin Scorsese was told to add nude scenes so it could be promoted as a sexploitation film. He shot the fantasy scene showing J.R. imagining encounters with prostitutes.
A scene with Harvey Keitel laying on a bed while "The End" by The Doors is playing in the background almost got repeated in Apocalypse Now (1979), though in different circumstances. Keitel was the original choice for the Willard role (played by Martin Sheen) in Francis Ford Coppola movie but was fired a few weeks after some rehearsals, and as known to many, the film starts with Willard lying on a bed with The Doors song playing in the background.
