* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/CharltonHeston was originally offered the role of The Great Leslie. He considered it a "funny script" but had to turn the part down when the production schedule for ''The Agony and the Ecstasy'' (1965) was delayed.

* ThoseTwoActors: Creator/TonyCurtis and Creator/NatalieWood in their third (and final) film together, and Curtis and Creator/JackLemmon in their second of two. Although, ask anyone to name a Tony Curtis/Jack Lemmon film, they'll probably think of [[SomeLikeItHot the other one]].

* NonSingingVoice: Robin Ward sang "The Sweetheart Tree" instead of Natalie Wood. Wood sang "My Country 'tis of Thee" herself earlier on...you can tell because she sounds off-key.

* DuelingWorks: The far more commercially and critically successful ''Film/ThoseMagnificentMenInTheirFlying_Machines'' had been released not a month prior by Fox, which hurt the film in both departments (though it still made over double its budget at the box office).

Added DiffLines:

* BigBudgetBeefUp: While crafted as a loving tribute to the often-dirt cheap medium of silent film, the sheer scale, ambition, and length of Edwards' story made the film, at the time, the most expensive comedy in history (roughly $90 million when adjusted for inflation).[[note]]Part of this was due to contractual negotiations; after Curtis's agent got him signed for $25,000 more than Lemmon and Wood, he proceeded to then advocate for them to all be paid equally.[[/note]]
