PG | | Fantasy, Musical, Romance
Apart from the title track, none of Electric Light Orchestra's songs were composed specifically for the film but had, in fact, already been written as potential ELO recordings by Jeff Lynne, before the band were approached by the film's producers.
Hey mister, what are you doing up there?
Danny McGuire: Hope you don't mind a little noon-time music, kid. A little lunch time serenade.
Sonny: Oh, I don't mind. It's kinda nice. But I was just wondering where they laid out the body. I mean, you got something a little more...
Sonny is left-handed, as we see when he is painting. In the close-up of him drawing, he holds the mechanical pencil in his right hand.
"THE END" comes up on the screen, in big old fashioned letters, before the end credits.
The original theatrical release uses the 1963 Universal logo at the end and then shows the PG rating slide. The 1994 VHS release (while retaining the Universal logo at the end), strangely replaces the PG rating slide with a GP rating slide (the original name for the PG rating from 1969 to 1972). The 1999 DVD restores the proper PG rating slide, however the 1963 Universal logo is removed. The 2008 DVD restores both the 1963 Universal logo and the original PG rating slide, making it a more accurate representation of the original theatrical release.
