Trivia

Brian Edward O'Connor improvised much of his dialogue as Schemer. He also came up with the idea of his single hair curl, as well as his garish costuming (which he staid belonged to his father). In fact, O'Connor improvised so much during filming that he was eventually given credit for Additional Material.
