John Huston was originally set to direct this film, but left the production some 17 days before shooting was due to begin. Bryan Forbes agreed to take over in order to have the experience of directing Katharine Hepburn, who became a close friend; he also insisted on hiring Ray Simm, a regular collaborator, as the set designer, and several last-minute alterations were made to already-built settings. Forbes also gave Michael J. Lewis his first job as a film composer. See more
People are not the same, Countess. People are different. No one is involved with anyone anymore. There - there's been an invasion, an infiltration. The world isn't beautiful any longer. The world is not happy.

Because you've been dreaming a long time, Countess. And no - nobody wanted to disturb you.
