Facts about

Anne Bancroft was originally cast as Merle McGill, but she turned it down for a stage role.
'Joseph L. Mankiewicz'' first script contained several novelties that never made it to the screen. Among them was a series of memos from a theater-chain owner (made to look as though they had been slipped in front of the projector) that commented on the action taking place. Also, there was to have been a running argument (resembling backstage squabbling) between a theater manager and the actor playing Cecil over such things as lines and cues.
Three dream sequences were filmed (though ultimately scrapped) of the women fantasizing Cecil's death and their inheritance.
