Trivia

Although it looks like a beautiful sunny day, it was actually a cold December day on Zuma beach, Southern California, where the desert island scenes were filmed. Indeed, Barbara Eden has been quoted as saying that it was a good thing it was filmed in black and white as her lips were blue. See more »

Goofs
