  • Stanley Kubrick got his uncle, a pharmacist, to put up most of the money to finance this film.
  • Stanley Kubrick insisted on setting up the lighting himself, as he liked to do, and did it without allowing a place for microphones. When his sound recordist Nathan Boxer objected, Kubrick fired him and recorded the sound himself.
  • Kubrick later denounced this film as amateurish, saying he considered it like a child's drawing on a fridge.
