* TheCameo: Robert Forster as Detective Mcknight and Dan Hedeya as Vincenzo Castigliane. Considering that the film was originally developed as a television pilot, both actors were intended to have screen time; there's even some deleted footage with Forster still available online. Due to ExecutiveMeddling however, the series was paired down to a two and a half hour movie and all but one of their respective scenes were cut.

* MocksteryTale: It starts as a quintessential mystery movie involving an amnesiac FemmeFatale Rita in Los Angeles, a young enthusiastic actress Betty trying to help her, a mafia syndicate, a hitman after a mysterious black book, etc. However, Betty and Rita's investigation doesn't really clarify anything, and the story gets a really surreal turn from a certain point... [[spoiler:According to a popular interpretation, the whole complicated mystery plot was a dream of a failed actress Diane Selwyn who reimagines the events of her life in a more favorable light (Betty is her alter ego). ]]
