Trivia

The show at the Baths was attended by over 800 extras, who included some of New York's elite. They were all paid $1.00 for their part and had to sign releases before they were admitted. The revue "Beyond the Fringe" was playing at the time and the astute viewer can see Dudley Moore and Peter Cook sipping a drink in the crowd. See more »

Goofs

Robert Arberdeen's birth year is listed as 1962. That would mean that he would only have been twelve to thirteen years old when this movie was filmed. This is obviously not the case. See more »

1975 double bill - WOW!
1 December 2001 | by (Colorado Springs, CO) – See all my reviews

I would LOVE to see this movie again. I saw it as a double bill with "Something for Everyone" with Michael York in 1975. It was incredible. I went home and shaved off my beard. The movie was entertaining and, beyond that, sincere and optimistic - like the spirit of the late 60's and early 70's. If I ever had the chance to see this film again, within about a 300 mile radius, I'd be there. It was transformative. It lives as a legend in my memory.
