Co-starring with Sinatra was Faye Dunaway as his ailing wife, bed-ridden in hospital during the entire duration of the film with a rare kidney affliction. The musical score was provided by composer and arranger Gordon Jenkins, who first worked with Sinatra on the 1957 album Where Are You?. One of the bit players was an unknown Bruce Willis who had a walk-on part, virtually unrecognizable as a hat covers most of his face.
