  • "The Party" was improvised from a 40-page outline. Each scene was shot in sequence, and built upon the previous scene. To aid in this experiment, the film's producers had a video-camera tube attached to the Panavision camera and connected to an Ampex studio videotape machine - allowing the actors and crew to review what they had just filmed. Thus, "The Party" was the first movie ever shot with the now-standard "video assist" system.
  • The only Blake Edwards -Peter Sellers collaboration that was not a Pink Panther film.
  • The unusual red sculpture on the wall behind the dining room table is a Mexican "arbol de la vida" (tree of life). They are still manufactured today.
