* TheCameo: The most obvious are TheYardbirds (with both Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck), who play at a local club. In the same scene you can also spot Creator/MichaelPalin between the crowd.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: When discussing a book he is making with his photographs, Thomas says something along the lines of "It's violent, I want to end it with something peaceful". The last scenes of the movie are as peaceful as you can get.

A box office and critical smash hit with really explicit sexual content for its time, this film was released in direct defiance to the HaysCode by MGM creating a subsidiary label to do it. As a result, the Code was all but done for after that and soon replaced by the present rating system. In short, this film did for its time for cinematic artistic freedom in the 1960s what ''{{Showgirls}}'' utterly failed to do in the 1990s.
