Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia When Nancy asks Bill if he loves her and Bill says, "Of course I do, I live with you, don't I", that line was ad-libbed by Shani Wallis and Oliver Reed, because Reed was walking through a very tough neighborhood one day and heard a woman saying, "Don't you love me" and a man saying, "Of course I do, I fucks you, don't I" Reed wanted to use it in the movie, but director Carol Reed wouldn't let him, so they used it, but changed it to "live with".
