More Movie Taglines:
  • One man against the world.
Movie Trivia:
  • The majority of the movie was filmed in the empty Man and His World Pavillion on St. Helen's Island.(The Island is connected to Montreal by Bridges and the subway.) It was originally built for Expo 67 and remained standing for several more years.
  • The pavilion was to be razed after filming was complete. 'Robert Altman' had developed an affection for the silk-screened glass panels that he had used to heighten the lost-world sense of the movie's setting. He salvaged the 44 panels and for a time displayed them at his Lion's Gate studio. When he and his wife found an apartment in Manhattan in 1984, about a dozen of the panels - some as tall as 18 feet - became the dominant decorative feature. (The history of the panels and the apartment, with photos, became an article in the March 1990 issue of "Architectural Digest", preserved online at http://www.sopot.org/altmanresidence.pdf.)
