Trivia

It marks as the first time Brian De Palma got out of the independent cinema and went to work for a studio system, in this case Warner Bros. They fired him after disliking everything he shot. The event traumatized the director and it would take almost 20 years for De Palma to work again with the studio, and the movie was The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990). See more »

Quotes

Mr. Delasandro: Now then, I'm the heckler, right? I've been needling you for the last ten minutes, right? Time now for you to strike back with all the style and wits at your command.
Donald Beeman: Up yours, fella!
Mr. Delasandro: Not bad. Not bad.

Early De Palma outing which showcases some of his visual flair.
27 February 2014 | by greene515See all my reviews

Tom Smothers of 'The Smother's Brothers Fame' plays high flying executive & magician Donald Beeman, who is destined for fame as Beeman the Marvelous. Trained in magic by the odd Mr. Delasandro(Orson Welles) and issued his own rabbit, Donald finds fulfilment and a special admirer (Katherine Ross of Butch Cassidy & the Sundance kid fame )while wowing locals at strip clubs. There are lots of shades of early Brian De Palma in this one, clever use of overhead shots which Martin Scorsese would use to great effect at the climax of 'Taxi Driver' & also clever use of SPlit screen which De Palma uses to better effect in his later pictures.
