initially written by john cassavetes as a stage play inspired by his wife and collaborator gena rowlands' desire to portray a contemporary woman's everyday struggles and strife, cassavetes shifted directions to a screenplay once gena read the script and realized it would be too intense and emotional to perform nightly on stage. they struggled to get funding for the film as they were told "no one wants to see a crazy, middle-aged dame" and had to turn to friends & family for help financing, including leading star and longtime friend peter falk, himself investing $500,000. the crew consisted of professionals and students from the american film institute where cassavetes was serving as "filmmaker in residence", and to keep costs low they shot scenes in a real house off hollywood blvd and gena was responsible for her own hairstyling and makeup. upon completion of the film, cassavetes now faced troubles finding distribution and in turn found himself calling theater owners and lugging around film canisters in hopes of getting one to screen the film. eventually the film gained traction and was well revered amongst other filmakers and critics alike, cementing it in film history as an indepent classic.
