* CutSong: Music/PaulSimon, who wrote the score for the film, also wrote a title song, "Have A Good Time," but Creator/WarrenBeatty convinced Creator/HalAshby to ditch the song in favor of Music/TheBeachBoys' "Wouldn't It Be Nice," because Beatty was convinced Simon's song set up his character as being purely superficial, hence one-dimensional. In consequence, Simon included the song on his multi-Grammy winning ''Still Crazy After All These Years'' album instead.


* RealLifeWritesTheHairstye: In her 2016 autobiography, ''The Princess Diarist'', Creator/CarrieFisher reveals that because her character claims she had never had her hair done, her real-life hair was deemed too short and she had to wear a wig.

* SavedFromDevelopmentHell: Creator/RobertTowne and Warren Beatty started working on the script in 1968, but it took years for them to find financing.
