Part of a cycle of movies made during the mid 1970s about Tinseltown, Old Hollywood, and its Golden Age, including the silent film era. The movies include Inserts (1975), Valentino (1977), Nickelodeon (1976), Silent Movie (1976), The Wild Party (1975), The Last Tycoon (1976), Hearts of the West (1975), The Day of the Locust (1975), and The World's Greatest Lover (1977).

This film is supposed to take place in the 1920s silent movie era, yet the movie extras riding in the bus to their location sing-along to "Shuffle Off to Buffalo", a Harry Warren-Al Dubin song written for the 1933 sound film "42nd Street."
There is a credit to Frederico Fellini, who was not on the picture, 'for encouragement at the right time'.
