A Hollywood composer goes through a mid-life crisis and becomes infatuated with a sexy, newly married woman.
Kay Lenz was offered the role of Jenny but turned the role down.
Doesn't he do anything except swim and jog on the beach?
Hugh: Oh yes! He makes me happy. So I let him swim and jog on the beach.
When George (Dudley Moore) is sitting on beach watching Jenny (Bo Derek), in the close-up shorts there is a woman beside him lying on her back wearing a yellow bikini, but in the long shots there is no one near him. In the long shots, you can see a woman some distance away (right side of the screen) lying on her stomach wearing a yellow bikini bottom, but apparently topless.
When the credits of the cast begins to scroll up and out of the iris of the telescope's view to George and Samantha's inside penthouse, only the members of the cast are seen and not their characters they played.
The TV print substitutes tamer versions of some of 10's racier moments. In particular, scenes featuring porn star Annette Haven as Dudley Moore's exhibitionist neighbor have been removed, replaced with scenes involving another actress. On scene features Moore's character using a telescope to watch a naked A. Haven making love (in the TV version, we see the substitute actress kissing a man while wearing a robe). A later scene, originally shown as a nude orgy, is replaced by a similar scene, but with everyone wearing bathing suits. In addition, the comedic lovemaking scene between Derek and Moore is played in the dark in the TV version.
