A number of cast and crew had appeared in Mel Brooks's Silent Movie (1976), another spoof of silent cinema, released the year before. They included actors Dom DeLuise, Carol Arthur, Jack Riley, Fritz Feld, composer John Morris, make-up man William Tuttle and production manager Frank Baur. Dom DeLuise was highly-billed in a major role on both pictures.
