Trivia

This and her 1981 film, "All Night Long" (the only film until "Meet The Fockers" in which she was only a supporting player and NOT the star) each grossed roughly $4 million dollars total, making them her lowest-grossing productions. Despite the box office failure of "Up The Sandbox", it garnered her some of the best personal reviews of her career, up to that time, and is reportedly one of her favorite performances she's given on screen.

This is a top 70's flick and highly underrated. I can imagine that it caused a stir in its release and still puts some viewers off. If David E. Kelley didn't get ideas for Ally McBeal from this, I'll go hee! Wonderful performance by Babs and hits the mark nicely.
