The first name of the movie's film director, Stanley (Peter Coyote), was derived from the first name of director Stanley Kubrick. The character though is only billed in the credits as "The Director". See more »
I first viewed this movie over 15-years ago. I remember hearing then; that the story, about the making of a low budget movie, was based on Stanley Kubrick's effort to make the movie "Killer's Kiss" (1955). That movie starred Irene Kane and Jamie Smith; and was produced by both Stanley Kubrick and Morris Bousel. Watch both motion pictures and see what you think.
