Mia Farrow's Role...interesting trivia


I just read that the lead actress role was first cited for Anne Murray (the singer.) Dino De Laurentiis saw her photo in Variety magazine and offered it to her but she turned it down due to scheduling conflicts. The role ultimately went to Mia Farrow.

From what I have always understood, Farrow first became attached to this project when Roman Polanski was slated to direct. After he dropped out due to his legal woes at the time, Farrow stuck with it, probably due to contractual obligations.

Woah, you're here too, B to the D? That's an interesting bit of trivia about the "Snowbird" singer, considering she has done very little acting.

I just found this movie on VHS at a record store. I couldn't resist it when I saw that Sven Nykvist was the cinematographer. This may be a failure, but I suspect it's a beautiful one. We'll see.
