This movie was conceived when Robert Duvall was walking down to the theatre one afternoon in 1977 and he saw a seven-year-old gypsy boy, who Duvall once said he heard say something like, "Patricia, if you don't love me no more, I'm gonna move to Cincinnati." Duvall got to know him and his family, and wanted to put their culture on film. The boy was Angelo Evans, and he stars as himself in this film. The famous quote was used as a tagline for this film, similarly saying: "Elizabeth, if you don't love me no more, I'm movin' to Cincinnati!"
