Peter Schaffer lured Diane Cilento out film retirement to take a role.
Will you send a dinghy, please?
In the bedroom seduction scene, Woodward's character is seen in close up pressing himself against the wall. A ring is clearly seen on the fourth finger of his left hand. At all other times in the film the ring is on the fourth finger of his right hand and there is no ring on his left hand.
[Short Version only] A message from the producers thanks "The Lord Summerisle and the people of his island" for co-operating in the making of the film. This is despite both the lord and the island being totally fictitious.
A 95 min version also exists that has the events in chronological order (unlike the 87 min version) but omits all footage prior to Sgt. Howie's arrival on Summerisle.
