Did You Know?
In an interview Annette O'Toole talked about her nude scene in this film. "I remember the very first nude scene I did was with Jack Lemmon. We did a film called THE ENTERTAINER, which was a musical adaptation of a John Osborne play. It was one of the first things after SMILE. We did a cut for American television, and a separate one for European film release. Of course, for the European one, we had to be naked and that was the hardest one because it was my first love scene. Jack Lemmon was as sweet as anybody could be. He didn't make a big deal about it. This man was just so wonderful. I remember before the scene, I was sitting thinking, 'In two hours, this will be over. You can do it!' And then when I got to the scene, it was as natural.as anything. Maybe that's why I don't have that big a problem, because it's just another scene." See more
