  • According to Leonard Hill, author of "Saucy Boy," Sue Upton had to sit on the Army helmet first in order to get her daughter to sit on it, and Dennis Kirkland recorded the shot at high speed so he would have a slower scene at normal speed.

  • During the Hill's Angels performance, Benny Plays Toulouse-Leutrec with the bottom part of his legs hidden in the stage, similar to how American comedian Tim Conway played the character Dorf.
  • The investment commercial quickie with Bob Todd, Benny Hill, Jon Jon Keefe and Jerrold Wells in the elevator was a parody of an ad campaign run in Late 80s London for The Financial Times newspaper.
