Facts about

Audrey Hepburn was Stanley Donen's first and only choice for the role of Joanna. When he sent her a treatment, she turned it down because the avant-guard style of filmmaking didn't appeal to her, as she had already done one like it before that hadn't been successful (it was probably Paris - When It Sizzles). When he tried again and sent her a whole script, she loved it and agreed to do it.
The poem recited to Caroline in the car, "The bumble-bee, the bumble-bee/ He flew away from the tulip tree..." is from 'Tommy's First Speaker for Little Boys and Girls' by Thomas W. Handford, published in 1886
Several biographies of Hepburn state she was very nervous shooting her first nude scenes for this film, particularly a skinny dipping sequence. If such a scene was shot, it didn't end up in the final print.
