This film is supposed to take place in the 1920s silent movie era, yet the movie extras riding in the bus to their location sing-along to "Shuffle Off to Buffalo", a Harry Warren-Al Dubin song written for the 1933 sound film "42nd Street."
There is a credit to Frederico Fellini, who was not on the picture, 'for encouragement at the right time'.
