In the French-dubbed version of the film, a mischievous translator replaced Sophia Loren's character name, "Cinzia", with "Gina". At the time Loren and Gina Lollobrigida were rivals for the "crown" of Italian sex symbols in film. See more »
During Cinzia's first visit to Tom's apartment, at one point he is adjusting the sofa bed; as the two converse the camera moves closer to them and the shadow of the moving camera can be seen on Cinzia's dress. See more »
Just thought you might like to know that HOUSEBOAT was partially shot at Fort Washington, Maryland.... right on the Potomac, south of Washington, DC. To my knowledge, this is the only Hollywood movie ever shot at the Fort. Since the movie was made there is now a COMMUNITY built up around the fort ALSO called "Fort Washington".... zip code 20744. In 1958 Fort Washington, Maryland was part of Oxon Hill, MD.
