Trivia

A bomb threat made to actor Peter O'Toole that turned out to be a hoax shut down the production for a short period. It was communicated by way of a letter which later was revealed to be a prank from film critic Kenneth Tynan. The joke angered two crew members who allegedly went and beat up Tynan. See more »

Quotes

interesting oddity, but neither frothy nor family entertainment,
3 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spot Cliff Gorman (Cathy Casserole of The Boys in the Band), John V. Lindsey (of the Mayor's office of New York City -- wow, he was handsome!) and Kim Cattrell (Liverpool-born, but who put the sex in Sex and the City) Hint: none of these emblematic New Yorkers are sporting New York accents. Isabel Huppert and Otto Preminger and Peter Lawford are amusingly findable, too. Okay, now you've had the fun that's to be had from this sadly prophetic, but soft-core version of terrorism. Plenty of tiresome speeches about Palestine and "the Jews," and Israel, all of which are far, far past all expiration dates. Oh yes, one other pleasure for those of a certain age is a bit of retro-tourism for the way Europe looked thirty-forty years ago. Enjoy.
