Trivia
Stefania Sandrelli had problem crying in the scene where Marcello Mastroianni got spat on for being a cuckold by Carmelo Patanè's wife. After many wasted takes and having been prompted by an onlooker, Pietro Germi with an unlit half cigar in his mouth got up from his chair, walked over to her and gave her two good slaps. Sandrelli was embarrassed because she had been slapped in front of hundreds of people really did begin crying and the the scene was finally shot.

The man manning the boat for Marcello Mastroianni and Stefania Sandrelli in the final scene was Giovanni Pluchino. He was a correspondent for the newspaper "La Sicilia" and at the time was reporting on the shooting of the movie for his paper. He was chosen for the bit part because he was "young, good-looking and tanned". Pluchino still remembers that for a long time he was the one who cuckolded Mastroianni.
