For the scene where Jennifer Jason Leigh seduces Bridget Fonda's boyfriend, without him realizing at first that she isn't who he thinks she is, Leigh was still having her make-up applied so the scene was shot with Bridget Fonda playing her own double. It was only the first part of the scene where the woman gets into bed (shot from the back) which Fonda did, as Leigh's character, as Fonda's character. The rest is done by Leigh.
Whoopi Goldberg auditioned for the role of Allison Jones.
Bridget Fonda had the choice of playing either the Allie role or the Hedy role. She ended up choosing to play Allie, because she said it was a harder role.

Like most old apartment buildings the building in this movie does not contain a floor 13. You can see the floor numbers on the elevator in a couple shots.

The Ansonia on the Upper West Side of Manhattan was used for the apartment building. The interiors were shot on a sound stage but the scenes in the stairwells were shot at The Ansonia.
