Did You Know?
According to the biography "Paul Newman
: A Life" (2009) by Shawn Levy, Newman had an almost major accident whilst racing a Porsche car at a New Orleans race-track off set during production. According to the book, Newman and a cohort were not wearing seat belts when the vehicle spun out of control. Newman said: "For a time we rode on two wheels. Then the car went on its side but we weren't thrown out. The windshield shattered. Fortunately it was European glass that breaks into powder on impact. We climbed out of the windshield. Neither of us was hurt. We hardly had our hair mussed. As I stood by the car, somebody slammed the door on my hand. Fortunately the door was sprung or I would have lost the tips of my fingers. 'Open the door' I said quietly. When they did, I ran to the beer cooler and stuck my fingers in the icy water. I didn't even lose my fingernails." Incidentally, in the earlier Lew Harper movie Harper
(1966) starring Newman, the make and model of Lew Harper (Paul Newman
)'s car was also a Porsche, a black-top gray / silver Porsche 356 A Speedster. See more
In the scene in the hydrotherapy room, there is a recessed panel in the wall with two access doors, on the side of the room closest to where Mavis (Gail Strickland) is lying. At the beginning of the scene, both doors to the recessed area are open, but for the rest of the scene, the right-hand door is closed, even though neither Mavis nor Harper (Paul Newman) are close enough to it to have closed it.

Door was unlocked.
