A scene was surreptitiously filmed of Michael Margotta running naked across the campus. The contract with the University of Oregon stated no nudity to be filmed on campus. The word got out, officials of the university objected, but that part of the filming had already been secreted out of the state. The movie's other nude scenes were filmed elsewhere. Source: Variety, Sep. 16, 1970.
