Sally Kellerman was reluctant to take on "another road movie" so soon after "Slither" (1973). The main thing that persuaded her, she writes, was that she would get to sing, one of Sally's passions. Kellerman also writes that director Dick Richards was uninterested in hearing Sally's thoughts about her character, but had no problem discussing character and motivation with Alan Arkin. Sally says she eventually started filtering her thoughts to Richards through Arkin, as if they were Arkin's ideas. See more »

This film has one of Louis Prima's last appearances. (He took ill in 1975). Louis can be seen in the Casino scenes along with longtime backups,Sam Butera and the Witnesses. They perform excerpts of "When Your Lover has Gone", "Che la Luna" and "Got you Under my Skin". Although the sequence is short and peppered with dialog,the old Prima magic shines thru. By this time,Louis was working with Sam and the Witnesses only. Keely Smith had been gone since 1961 and Gia Maione,Louis' singing partner and wife was only appearing with the group occaisinly The film is so-so,but worth staying with to enjoy Louis,Sam and the Band.
