Did You Know?


For the "vomit" scene the director wanted absolute realism, so Iris Palmer had to drink a concoction of blended spaghetti bolognaise, milk and food coloring, then chase it with a mug of hot water, salt and lemon juice, inducing projectile vomiting. Watching the scene, a member of the Premiere screening fainted and had to be dragged to the bathroom to be revived. Also at the Premiere an audience member ran out crying and screaming when a very bloody scene came on. See more »
