Trivia
While shooting a scene on-location in New York City, Olivia Newton-John was bitten by a dog named "Pascha." The Collie/German shepherd mix lived in the neighborhood and was hired along with his owner as an extra. When Olivia approached them asking to pet the dog, the owner warned her that Pascha was afraid of crowds. Leaning in to pet him anyway, she was bitten on the hand. Needless to say, this ended Pascha's movie career, and they filmed the scene without him. Olivia braved the injury and kept on working.
