Years after they made this movie, Shelley Winters and Annie Potts appeared as guests on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962). Looking at Potts, Shelley Winters said, "I know you from somewhere, or I've seen you in some great movies. I can't remember which." Annie Potts replied, "Well, maybe it was one we did together." Winters didn't remember the film, until Potts reminded her that it was King of the Gypsies (1978).
