Trivia

The show at the Baths was attended by over 800 extras, who included some of New York's elite. They were all paid $1.00 for their part and had to sign releases before they were admitted. The revue "Beyond the Fringe" was playing at the time and the astute viewer can see Dudley Moore and Peter Cook sipping a drink in the crowd. See more »

Goofs

Robert Arberdeen's birth year is listed as 1962. That would mean that he would only have been twelve to thirteen years old when this movie was filmed. This is obviously not the case. See more »

New DVD has different ending
2 May 2007 | by brentskubaSee all my reviews

When I saw this film in Washington DC in 1976 - at the tender age of 16! - I was flabbergasted by the finale, where the two male leads get onto a bed, kissing, completely naked. Fast forward three decades later - when I saw this was available for rental, I sat through the whole thing, and remembered bits and pieces of it. While the very handsome male lead (the bi guy) does get shown nude with his wife, the last scene with the two guys naked got replaced by a scene of them, fully clothed, on the roof of a building talking and kissing. Kind of a letdown! Still it was pretty cool to relive that amazing moment from the seventies when I witnessed gay film-making for the first time.
