** Creator/SarahJessicaParker tried out for the role of Amanda.
** Kristy [=McNichol=] was offered the role of Amanda, and even successfully auditioned for the part. According to [=McNichol=], the producers told her afterwards when they would begin filming and that she had to start preparing, but over one weekend they changed their minds, and she was disappointed to hear that they gave the role to Tatum O'Neal. She and O'Neal would co-star in the 1980 film ''Film/LittleDarlings''.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The studio originally wanted Creator/BurtLancaster to play Buttermaker. The screenwriter (Lancaster's son) vetoed that idea as he didn't want people to think he was playing off his father's fame.
