Trivia

Rich Little was cast by director Orson Welles as the character Otterlake in the film. Welles praised Little's acting, saying that impressionists seemed to make good actors. Little, however, had to drop out of the movie since Welles improvisational style of filming, as well as layoffs caused by budgetary constraints, meant that the shooting schedule was not only unpredictable but practically interminable. When Little was unavailable for filming due to his honoring prior commitments, Welles replaced him with director Peter Bogdanovich, in whose house Welles was then living. The film was never completed during Welles' lifetime. See more »

parkerr86302 is correct
27 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

parkerr86302 is correct about Pat McMahon (from Arizona's fabled WALLACE AND LADMO SHOW) having bit parts in the film.

I know. I was in the shoot too.

I was in three scenes at the Carefree house where the b-day party was filmed. One at the party, one on the roof of the garage with McMahon, and one where the director pulled me aside to shoot a very strange scene on the rocks in the backyard over the pool.

I had to arrange a set of dummies on the rocks, look over at where Cameron Mitchell was to stand, and say "OK, Zimmie?" I wonder if they will keep my scene in when the film is released. Should be hoot if it is.
