The role played by Faye Dunaway was first offered to Diane Ladd: Dunaway and Ladd had both appeared in the film Chinatown (1974) in which Ladd's character impersonates Dunaway's. Dunaway was given the role as she was agreeable to a lesser fee than that asked by Ladd and also did not wish the star billing which Ladd did.
Kris. These are the pictures that Charlene was talking about just before she fell and died. I didn't call her that night and tell her that there was an emergency at the bakery. You did... on my behalf. You were going to kill her and pin the murder ...
Though the movie takes place in Portland, Oregon, one of the characters is listening to a Seattle radio station, which would not be available in Portland.
