Trivia According to Terence Stamp, Wyler wouldn't let Samantha Eggar off the set during the day. He also wouldn't allow her to eat with anyone else during the lunch break. Stamp argues Wyler knew what he was doing, as the director whispered to him one day on set, "I know this looks cruel, but we're going to get a great performance out of her." See more »
