Jewison admits that the film places an emphasis on style over content and saw it as an experiment in film style. He credits the flashy vibe to the editing of Hal Ashby. He also credits the extensive split-screen technique to a Charlie Chaplin film, A Place to Stand. When Jewison saw Chaplin's movie in Montreal shortly before starting on his movie, he was so taken with the possibilities that he incorporated the technique in his own movie. This is a solid track from the veteran filmmaker.
