John Houseman: As the producer, I can fire anybody I want, and I am fucking fired!


Goofs

In the opening exterior NYC street sequence following Olive, just as John Turturro's credit is supered, a window mounted air conditioner is visible in the alleyway behind. While home air conditioning was introduced in 1928, it was extremely rare until after World War II, and it's not clear the design shown was available at the time.


Crazy Credits

This film was edited on old fashioned machines.
