Executive Meddling: The American version, in addition to being retitled by the producer, suffered a good many edits. Twenty minutes of footage were cut, all of the actors were redubbed with American accents, and a two-minute cartoon prologue was added to the beginning. Polanski disowned this version, and it has never been released on DVD.
Romance on the Set: Roman Polanski fell in love with Sharon Tate and they were married soon after. Just two years later, Tate was murdered by the Charles Manson family just weeks away from the birth of their first child, while Polanski was making a film in Europe.
