To save money, the interior scenes were shot with a multi-camera television setup, then transferred to 35mm film. See more »
During bookstore scene, a counter top display of a book by author/performer Steve Allen (whose wife Jayne Meadows appears in a major supporting role) keeps flip-flopping so cover is always on view, whether it is being shot from point-of-view of a customer or from that of behind counter clerk.

Like MOST movie critics, the opinions expressed here only serve to prove what most movie goers already know, movie critics should stay at home and read Garfield, Snoopy or the like. I attended the premier of this movie with a group of friends and we ALL laughed until our sides were sore. I guess you have to be of "average intelligence" and a movie goer of that era to really appreciate this movie. Red Foxx WAS up to his "usual potential," Pearl Baily was a bit bland, the late Wayland Flowers STOLE the movie. There were only a few "gay theme" movies that ever made it to the big screen during that time. The Ritz, The Boys in the Band, and Norman is that you? None of these movies were "spectacular" but they filled a niche. Maybe you just had to be "gay" to understand just how humorous these movies were.
