- Ask Her No Questions And Nobody Dies.
- She was only a little girl. She lived in a great big house... all alone. Where is her mother? Where is her father? Where are all the people who went to visit her? What is her unspeakable secret? Everyone who knows is dead.
- Jodie Foster was fourteen at the time of filming and refused to appear nude. Thus, her older sister, Connie Foster, was used as her double in the film's brief nude sequence.
In interviews, Jodie Foster usually refrains from saying which of her films are her least favorites, but she has let it slip that this movie isn't one she is fond of, explaining, "When people are there to simply do a job they don't have any passion for, those are nearly always bad films."
Scott Jacoby told Seventeen Magazine in 1977 that the hamster they used in the cigarette scene was already dead, but that the shot gave Jodie Foster the fits anyway. Foster went on record as saying one of the producers on this film was "nuts", explaining that he wanted her to show more skin and she refused. Foster had a terrible time with the sexual scene upstairs with Mario. Although her older sister did the shot, Foster was very upset that viewers would think this was her and fought and cried with the producers, to no avail.
