Shelley Duvall lived with tobacco heir Patrick Reynolds (Draycott) in Wolf's Lair, a castle in Hollywood from 1974 to 1976. She convinced a shy, reluctant Reynolds to visit her on the set of Nashville (1975), whereupon director Robert Altman cast him in a walk-on role in the film. Reynolds was then cast as Draycott Deyo in Bernice Bobs Her Hair. Later he went on to act in other TV and film roles, including a starring part in the sci-fi feature Eliminators (1986). In 1986 Reynolds embarked on a new career speaking out against Big Tobacco, his family's former business.

Bernice: How old are you?
Marjorie's braids are brunette throughout the story, but they are blond in the back seat of her car.
