There is a reference to Shirley MacLaine's Irma la Douce (1963) in the scene where Louisa arrives in Paris. On the bus, she passes "Maxim's", which is featured prominently in the beginning montage of "Irma la Douce". See more »
When Louisa joins Rod Anderson on the flight deck of the airplane, it obviously is not one of a 707, as the exterior shots establish. There is no flight engineer position, and the control yokes appear to be from a Douglas airplane. In addition, there are a number of instruments behind the pilot's position. See more »
Rod Anderson, Jr.:
Nobody triples the business of Anderson Enterprises but Rod Anderson. Someone has been giving orders... somewhere. Somebody in my organization. Why, that's absolute treachery. Somebody's been giving orders behind my back. Imagine that! If I wanna lose a fortune, I'll lose a fortune. If I wanna triple it, I'll triple it - no one else.

I recently bought this movie, it's so funny. I don't think it could be remade decently because the stars in it were big enough to poke fun at themselves and their business. I can't imagine a modern "star" being able to laugh at himself. I first saw it when it came out and I loved it on the big screen and I still love it. I had a younger friend over and she loved it. I bought it from a "cheap movie" bin at my grocer's. The costumes are marvelous, the "movie" song/dance parts are so much fun. I would still like to know what Paul Newman was saying in French so I'm still looking for someone who can speak the language and interpret for me. (It sounded dirty, LOL.) When I first saw this movie, the ending was a surprise twist; the movie's a combination of over-the-top funny, satiric and just plain charming. Some of our biggest stars having fun. It's worth seeing.
