** Much of Nonnie's clueless nature is down to the timing. This is a movie made in the seventies and Nonnie is the epitome of the desperately naive, gentle hippy flower child of the time period, floating through life with an older brother to take care of her. Until he dies, she's probably never been required to make a decision for herself in her entire life. So her confusion and hopeless participation in a crisis is possibly understandable.

* {{Fanservice}}: Dagnabbit, those long skirts worn by Pamela Sue Martin and Stella Stevens are way too inconvenient for them to climb out of the ballroom in. Guess they'd better take them off. (Conveniently enough, the hefty Shelley Winters is not required to strip at all, though in fairness her dress was not as tight as theirs.)
