Trivia

Otto Preminger, who spent his younger years evading the Nazis, was less than thrilled at the concept of directing near the sites of his former trauma and would direct scenes from his car while filming in East Germany. Rumor has it that he would direct the scenes with the windows up and, when the scene was over, he would roll it down and yell, "Cut," and, "Print." See more »

Quotes

Larry Martin: The President is sitting all alone in his little oval office, trying to decide which way to go. If he allows the film to be shown, he loses the Jewish vote. If he forbids it, he loses every mother in the country. The arithmetic is on your side. Mothers are in the majority.

interesting oddity, but neither frothy nor family entertainment,
3 August 2007 | by 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.
