Artie Butler did not write a score for this film. The music was actually previously recorded tunes from the Warner Brothers library which Mr. Butler arranged throughout the film to sound like "elevator music" throughout the film. He did record the songs sung by Streisand for the film, but nothing more. See more »
As the bike begins to roll backward down the hill, the pedals force Judy's feet to turn backward, indicating it has a d?railleur-type hub, which can only freewheel in the forward direction.

The most fun I've ever had in front of the TV set!
I think this film is the funniest movie I have ever seen. No matter how many times I see it, I always find surprisingly fresh and completely hilarious. Barbra Streisand's performance is the centerpiece of the whole film. She simply glows with warmth, sexiness, and humor. There isn't a moment when we don't find her completely believable. Ryan O'Neal adds a great physical presence and is gloriously restrained. The film also contains some great supporting turns from Ken Mars, Liam Dunn, and especially Madeline Kahn, who nearly steals the movie in her film debut.
