Goofs

When Madge is driving away her license plate is yellow and has six numeric characters. This kind of license plate was introduced in Tel-Aviv in 1971. Until then, at least since the 1950s, the license plates in Israel were red and had 5 numeric characters. The scene was set in 1969. The same goof also was seen on Uri's car after his first show.

Worst film EVER
11 August 2019 | by PzachlenSee all my reviews

For me to say that will amaze people that know me because Ken Russell directed it and wrote it. BAD Ken, Bad Boy Ken. On a visit to L.A Ken showed it to Dan Ireland and Myself. When He asked what we thought..........WE did not soften the blow. Horrible must have been my comment but I do remember Dan just Laughing in disbelief. I hope they both are sharring a good laugh where ever they may be. These were two of my best, Very Best friends of mu life. How I miss them.
