On the first day of filming, River Phoenix showed up high and blew several takes. As he attempted to hit his mark, he stumbled and almost fell, mumbling his lines into the ground, and not making eye contact with the other actors. Phoenix claimed to director Peter Bogdanovich that he had only taken a pain pill and one beer, and that he was mostly depressed over the recent breakup with girlfriend Suzanne Solgot. Bogdanovich would later minimize Phoenix's troubles that night and insisted that he don't cause another problem for the rest of production.
