Warren Beatty and Julie Christie had been previously offered to play Stephen and Nina Blume, when this project was in development and, for a while, they were both attached, until Beatty dropped out, convincing also then-lover and partner Christie to leave the film as well since he was supposedly too busy working on Shampoo (1975) and on the script of Heaven Can Wait (1978), which was made by them, only several years later.

i disagree with those who were so put off by the rape scene that they cannot give the movie a positive review. remember this movie was made over 30 years ago at the height of the sexual revolution (i'm not excusing it). mazursky is a very interesting and unique writer/director who is responsible for some really excellent films, to wit: moscow on the hudson, down and out in beverly hills, an unfinished woman and next stop greenwich village. to me this movie has it all, great music, excellent acting and one of the funniest scenes i have ever seen in a movie when george segal, as a divorce attorney tries to calm his client, shelly winters. you'll enjoy it, trust me. p.s. the key word in some of those other reviews is "self-indulgent."
