Trivia

In one scene, Olga Ryzhova reads a poem "O, moy zastenchivyy geroy..." by Bella Akhmadulina. The poem, written in 1960 or 1961, was still unpublished when the film was released, and Svetlana Nemolyaeva, who played Ryzhova, had to write copies of the poem by hand and send them to her fans for several years after the film's release.
