Mabel, a wife and mother, is loved by her husband Nick but her mental illness proves to be a problem in the marriage.
Cassavetes initially wrote the film as a play but wife Gena Rowlands talked him out of it, stating the role would be far too harrowing and exhausting to play night-after-night.
Dad... will you stand up for me?
George Mortensen: Sure.
Mabel Longhetti: No, I don't mean that. Sit down, Dad. Will you please stand up for me?
In the scene where Nick first decides to have Mabel committed, he's got a towel on his shoulder and a bottle of gin in his hand. The next cut contains the towel, but no bottle of gin. The following shot the gin returns.
