The cast includes:[1]



The film was "culled from 50 hours of footage."[2]


Jaglom recycled a clip of the magician (played by Orson Welles) pulling a cardboard rainbow out of a small yellow box for the logo of his company, Rainbow Releasing, which only appeared on the 1995 film, Last Summer in the Hamptons.


Jaglom's directorial debut was a "critical and box-office disaster"[3] Time magazine called the film "pretentious and confusing", a film that "suggests that the rumors of his expertise were greatly exaggerated, or at least that it does not extend to directing."[4] Vincent Canby described the film as a "superficial case history of a suicide" whose "narrative pretends to be a lot more complex"; the film "reveals the director's apparent adoration of his star [Weld], whom he studies in every possible light and color combination, and in every possible camera setup, often orchestrated with fine, corny songs out of the 1940s and 1950s on the order of Charles Trenet's "La Mer" and "Vous Qui Passe Sans Me Voir."[1] Variety said the film's "deliberate experimentation puts a heavy burden upon the viewer." Its "writer-director "has plunged in over his own depth."[5]
