Facts about

A running gag is the absence of an elevator to get to the newlyweds' 6th-floor apartment; new arrivals are out of breath throughout the film. For its release in France, however, the dubbed dialogue placed the apartment on the 9th floor (equivalent to the 10th floor in the US), since in France, older buildings with six stories and no elevator are not uncommon and audiences wouldn't have understood why climbing the stairs was so arduous.
The fictional address of the apartment is 49 West 10th Street.
The film role of 'Corie Bratter' was originally offered to actress Natalie Wood who had already played opposite Robert Redford in two movies. Wood declined the offer though, because she wanted to take time off.
