A Woman Under The Influence Trivia
- John Cassavetes struggled to find a distributor for the film, and at one point, he was physically carrying the reels from one theater to another, trying to get someone to screen it. However, Martin Scorsese, who had gained critical acclaim with his film "Mean Streets" (1973), was a big fan of Cassavetes' work. He threatened to withdraw his film "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore" (1974) from a major New York film festival unless they agreed to show "Influence".
- Cassavetes had originally intended to write the film as a play, but his wife Gena Rowlands advised against it, saying the role would be too intense and demanding to perform every night.
- To finance the film, Cassavetes remortgaged his home and Peter Falk contributed some of his earnings from "Columbo" (1971). When nobody wanted to buy "Influence," Cassavetes spent $750,000, most of which was his own money, to release it with the help of young distributor Jeff Lipsky. Lipsky helped to "four-wall" the film by renting out theaters to show it. The film went on to play worldwide, earning a total of $12 million.
- The two women whom Mabel asks for the time on the street while waiting for the school bus were actually Gena Rowlands' real-life school friends.
- In 1990, "Influence" was selected into the National Film Registry for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
- Richard Dreyfuss claimed that when he first saw the film, it was so intense that it made him nauseous.
