Trivia

Terry-Thomas explains the plot of a book he is reading to Sharon Tate called "My Name Is Lust". The copy of the book he gives her has the title pasted over the cover of an existing paperback novel, the 1969 Corgi Books printing of "The Thing Of It Is" by William Goldman. See more »

Alternate Versions

Both versions of the film ("12 + 1" and "The 13 Chairs") have completely different opening and ending title sequences, in terms of fonts and placements. For example, in the opening on the former, the "12 + 1" logo appears one by one in the shot of Mario crossing the street, while in the other version, the logo appears 16 seconds into the film. The ending on the "12 + 1" version has the words "THE END" placed right before the end credits, and right after the freeze-frame, as opposed to the other version, that has "THE END" appear right after the end credits. In addition, both beginning and ending titles for the "12 + 1" version have names and companies that were not credited on the other version, and vice-versa. Both versions even feature different shots of the hair salon in the opening. See more »

A real pity
19 September 2018 | by ewgersSee all my reviews

This film was cruising along quite nicely with Sharon Tate providing the best acting and the glamour The moment Orson Wells arrived in the film .It suddenly lost its way . For me .You can clearly see Sharon was going to be massive in years to come I truly wish she had got the chance
