This film marked the only appearance together of George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg: they did other films apart after this one and died in later years. Although they portrayed three elderly men of approximately the same age, they spanned over 20 years in difference: Burns (born 1896) was 83, Strasberg (born 1901) was 78, while Art Carney (born 1918) was only 61 years old when the film was made.

In at least two scenes early in the movie, the microphone cables attached to the characters are visible. Both of the scenes show the three stars photographed from a distance with a telephoto lens as they walk toward the camera. They are walking on very crowded sidewalks. Look at Art Carney when he is on our right in one scene and you will plainly see the wire that is attached to his lapel microphone as it is easy to spot through his transparent shirt. It goes from his belt up to where it disappears inside his jacket. In a later scene still early in the movie George Burns has a very visible mic cable outline leading up to his lapel inside his jacket. George is on the left wearing a blue jacket. See more
