    Trivia: There are 10 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • The script originally called for full male frontal nudity, but William Baldwin changed his mind after the scenes had been shot.
    • Ira Levin was reluctant to sell the rights to his book. He had only been pleased with the movie adaptation of Rosemarys Baby (1968) out of all the attempts to film his novels. When producer Robert Evans, who had produced Rosemarys Baby (1968), got wind of this, he sent Levin a copy of Roman Polanskis autobiography, with all the mentions of Evans salvaging the film highlighted. The ploy worked and Levin sold the rights to Evans for $250,000.
    • During filming, a crew was sent to Hawaii to film an active volcano for the opening credits. During the flyover, the volcano erupted, and the helicopter carrying the crew crashed. No one was killed, but all film was lost. The opening credit scene is referenced in the film by the crystal volcano in Zekes Room.

When the photo session is over the store is left in a shambles, much to salesgirl Jo Stocktons (Audrey Hepburn) dismay. Avery stays behind to help her clean up. Later, he examines the photos taken there and sees Jo in the background of one shot. He is intrigued by her unique appearance, as is Maggie Prescott (Kay Thompson), the editor of a leading fashion magazine.

    Trivia: There are 8 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • The role of Mary Carson was offered to Audrey Hepburn.
    • Many actresses tested for the role of Meggie, including Michelle Pfeiffer. Finally, it came down to two actresses, Rachel Ward, and Jane Seymour. Producers liked Seymours acting much better, but felt she was too strong an actress and lacked the vulnerability needed to play Meggie. So the part went to Ward.
    • Producers found the conditions of shooting in Australia to be impossible. Most of the sheep ranches were to far out in the middle of nowhere for film crews to get to, and the requirements placed on American film crews to shoot in Australia were unrealistic. So the entire ranch, Drohgeda was built in California.

    • Due to the bankruptcy of German distributor Kinowelt in 2001, the movie never had an official release in Germany (theatrically or on DVD), although there was already a German dub version created.
