Trivia

"Where Does It Hurt?" was filmed with much of the production money invested by director Rod Amateau and actor Peter Sellers, making the director and star both acting producers of the film. On the first day of filming, Sellers phoned Amateau and asked that a limousine be sent to his Los Angeles hotel to transport the actor to the film studio. Amateau explained to Sellers that he'd be glad to send a limousine to transport the actor, but since Sellers was sharing in the expenses of the production as well as the profits, the limousine would cost the actor fifty dollars per day. The next morning, Sellers arrived at the studio in the passenger seat of a pickup truck driven by the film's key grip. Passing Amateau on his way to the set, Sellers explained to the director, "He lives near me." See more »

Sellers at his funniest!
1 April 2004 | by (Monrovia, CA) – See all my reviews

We have laughed until we cried watching this movie. We were fortunate to have taped it off the TV for our own personal viewing, however we did this on BETA so.... when we put it on VHS the copy degraded somewhat.

Pat Morita was brilliant as the lab tech. When he sang along with the Spanish radio..... Sellers is a master of facial expression & in this movie, he was at his best. This is a movie that needs to be released. Is there any way to light a fire under someone so they will know where it hurts (under them) and get this wonderfully funny movie released??? There is money to be made selling Sellers' funniest! Here's hoping!
