When Howard Bannister ends up at the rooftop cocktail lounge, which was under construction, it was not a set, but actually the "Starlight Roof" of the Hilton, which was being remodeled at the time. The view of San Francisco is the actual view from the room. A piano was brought up and placed in the room for the shot. Barbra Streisand sang the song live, not to a recording, because director Peter Bogdanovich wanted her singing to sound natural as she stepped down from the top of the piano. See more »
When Mr. Jones is following Mr. Smith at the beginning of the movie. Mr. Jones gets into a cab where the cab driver is very noticeably bald. But when he gets out later on, the cab driver has a lot of hair blowing in the breeze. See more »
I won't give away too much of the plot, but let's just say 5 identical bags get mixed up in San Francisco. Barbra Streisand hasn't been in a lot of films and after seeing this, I have to say, more's the pity. She sparkles in this film! Of course, the film itself is a madcap adventure and she just fit right in. Ryan O'Neal and the always-hilarious (unfortunately, late) Madeline Kahn also make this movie just a hoot to watch! Watch a lot of comedy before you watch this one so your laughing muscles will be in shape - that way you won't hurt yourself! This is a funny funny movie!
