According to the May 1991 Premiere Movie Magazine story on Zandalee. - Originally Cage's character was supposed to paint Zandalee with red paint, but after watching the love scene prior to this scene, it was decided that a more tender side of the relationship be shown, so he painted Zandalee using light blue and yellow.

It is not the ring that gives soul to honor, it is heart. An unswerving heart.

This is a great-looking film, filmed in rich colors and beautiful New Orleans locations. But dramatically it doesn't fare so well; it's mostly a monotonous series of heavy-breathing sequences, interrupted by dialogue passages that seem to exist only because a film can't be made ONLY with sex scenes. We also get lots of gratuitous nudity from the statuesque Erika Anderson, who's married to Judge Reinhold (fairly good, but not good enough to be taken absolutely seriously as a dramatic actor yet) and pursued by Nicolas Cage (in a smug performance he would probably like to forget today). Overall, not a horrible film, but not outstanding, either. (**)
