For the scene with the "wild goose chase", production staff had 500 geese imported from Iowa to Wisconsin. See more »
The lighting during the scene by the lake when Sabrina, completely naked and wet and hiding behind Peter to shield herself from the boy scouts, changes from shot to shot, at some points being early morning and in other shots being late afternoon. Sabrina's messy wet hair is also inconsistent during this scene. See more »
Enjoyable though predictable bickering romantic thriller
Combine THE THIN MAN with IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT and THE FRONT PAGE and what do you get? This is an enjoyable thriller - rival newspaper reporters (Nolte playing Jack Nicholson and Roberts playing herself) try to outscoop each other, get drawn into a suspicious cover-up and wind up joining forces (and falling in love) as they single-handedly solve the mystery. Terrible title but some beautiful cinematography and a plot that moves along entertainingly. It's all predictable, but the fun lies in the constant attempts of the two protagonists to outsmart, outscoop and blatantly lie to each other to get the upper hand. Marsha Mason has two scenes playing a Senator (one without dialogue) in a performance that lasts less than a minute, which would tend to indicate her subplot was cut in the editing room. It's long enough at 123 minutes. If you like the stars and want to see a well-done romantic cops and robbers flick, this is a go.
