According to Mazursky's autobiography, Judith Malina was originally cast as the dictator's mother. But there was a mixup, Malina was unavailable, and the production only had the Rio opera house available for three days. They tried in vain for Zoe Caldwell, and considered a few Brazilian actresses. Mazursky ended up playing the part himself, in drag. See more »
