The film was Razzie Award nominated for one Golden Raspberry Award for Dom DeLuise for Worst Supporting Actress and not for Worst Supporting Actor, due to his drag act, and actually won the Razzie for his role as "Aunt Kate". See more »
When Aunt Kate slides down the banister of the grand stairs in the foyer, they creak as if wood, however the banisters are clearly marble. One may, however, assume this to be artistic licence for the benefit of humour. See more »

This is a fantastic film, with the extremely funny Gene Wilder behind it. It is set in the Early 20th Century, and Gene and his future wife are two radio actors, and before they get married they go to his family house, where strange goings on happen. This is a great film, with silly humor and great for a laugh. If you do not like silly comedy's then this may not be your cup of tea, Gene Wilder is a comedy King and he shows it in this film. I would compare this film to Young Frankenstien, and that too is a brilliant film. I give this four and a half out of five.
