Trivia

The film was so well received in Europe after numerous press and distributor screenings that director James B. Harris was invited to attend the prestigious "Directors Fortnight" at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival and present the film. In Europe, "Some Call It Loving" was welcomed with open arms and hailed as an artful drama. In the United States, the critics were not as kind, labeling the film a curious oddity. The picture quickly faded from screens due to the negative word of mouth and lack of release. Since its initial release in the US, however, it has garnered a respectable cult following. See more »

Scarlett: [to Robert and Jennifer] Now we have our music. It would give me such pleasure to see the two of you dance. So if you would, you two dance, and I'll watch.
Robert Troy: I don't dance.
Scarlett: You don't dance? Oh, what a pity. Well then we'll dance, and you watch. You do watch, don't you?

Update of the Sleeping Beauty story
1 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

It has been more than a quarter century since I saw this movie. it is not a good movie. It is, however, one of the more bizarre films you will ever see. It has stayed in my memory all these years while other clunkers are gone. Richard Pryor's turn as a wino-philosopher and Zalman King as a jazz musician-prince defy description. And its has a nuns dancing scene with Carol White. Because of the cast and treatment, this truly may be a one of a kind experience.
