Trivia / Washington Square

  • Channel Hop: With the advent of television, Paramount sold the rights to Universal Studios in 1958 for the film to be shown on the airwaves. Ever since then, 'The Heiress' has been distributed on VHS and DVD by Universal Home Entertainment.
  • Creator Backlash: Henry James grew to dislike Washington Square, mostly because of the comparisons it got to the works of Jane Austen. Even detractors of Henry James liked Washington Square, making it a non-musical Black Sheep Hit.
