Trivia

Meryl Streep was romantically involved with John Cazale during the filming, as well as after when he died. Dustin Hoffman was aware of this, it's part of why he had producers cast her as Joanna Kramer in Kramer vs. Kramer (1979), because she would bring a vulnerable woman-in-crisis feeling to the role.


Quotes
