The film credits list Teri Shields as the Motel Clerk. She was the mother of Brooke Shields and was 45 years of age at the time of filming the motel scenes in Prescott, AZ. See more »
When Wanda and Beaudray arrive at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, Wanda sits down on a chair beside the blockhouse and is totally in the shadow of the roof. Moments later, she is mostly sitting in the sun while the chair is unmoved. See more »
I find it offensive that so many reviewers have sided with Wanda's oppressors and would rather see her locked up in a "reform school" -- where the only thing that would be re-formed is her sweet spirit. Why have so many people still not realized that chronological age is not an accurate gauge of anyone's emotional maturity? As a Master Yoga Therapist and Jungian, I know that men with black-and-white morality values cannot face finding a thirteen-year-old sexually or romantically attractive; so they suppress their desire and compensate by rejecting the catalyst. A similar syndrome is the father who compensates for an unconscious desire for his daughter by rejecting all her potential suitors as "not good enough" for her. Older women often have problems with those who are young and attractive.
The precious message of this charmingly unpretentious film is this: All General Rules of behavior must be given room for grand exceptions. After all, it is these that make life worth living.
