According to director James H. Kay, at one point the people who owned the house the film was being shot at wanted to evict the production from their property when shooting was only half complete. The production brought in lawyers to work out a deal, but while this was going on director Kay prepared to quickly return the crew to the house and not leave until filming was complete. Fortunately, the lawyers came through and the crew was allowed to continue shooting at the location. See more »
Last night I saw this film, which missed the possibilities of developing an interesting story, with endless dialogs and bad performances. But I wouldn't put the blame on Joe Dallesandro. After all he plays a tree or something like that, so he delivers his line as plant-like as possible. He is a beautiful tree to look at, though, and I believe this is what this film is all about, including his legendary derrière. Poor Katharine Houghton tries to deliver a dramatic performance in the line of a giallo fatal heroine to no avail; James Congdon as her husband is rather boring (especially with Little Joe around), and Rita Gam is simply having a good time. I lived in Puerto Rico when this film was shot, but I did not hear anything about it being made. It was fun to watch a few theater people that were my friends, playing minor roles (Esther Mari, the cook; or Orlando Rodríguez and Janet Gómez as the couple Houghton visits).
