YMMV / Petulia

  • Adaptation Displacement: The novel on which it's based, Me and The Arch Kook Petulia, is remembered mainly because of this movie (and the odd fact that its author, John Haase, was a dentist who wrote fiction on the side.)
  • Retroactive Recognition: Several later familiar character actors have uncredited bit parts. It was the film debut for Howard Hesseman and Austin Pendleton, and the second film for René Auberjonois.
