Trivia

The cleavage-revealing outfit Fern wore in the scene where she and Davy Jones meet was actually considered too risqué for the time, and the scene was censored visually. (And somewhat crudely, with Vaseline smeared over Fern's image in a few shots.) An uncensored version appeared in syndication during the 1970s, but wasn't part of the 1980s remastering. The uncensored footage finally reappeared in remastered form, during IFC's 2015 Monkees marathon. See more »

Goofs

When Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork, and Michael Nesmith are looking for Davy Jones, they question three extras and each points in a different direction. In the very next shot when we see Davy walking in a different part of town, all three extras are visible walking in the background. See more »

Quotes

Peter: Poor Davy.
Mike: He's helpless. Trapped by his own staggering good looks.
Micky: I, myself, am deeply jealous.

Alternate Versions

The scene in which Fern wins over Davy by posing as a contestant in the National Beauty Pageant (wearing a leopard skin bikini) was heavily censored on most broadcasts and even on the DVD version. All wide shots were deleted, the two-shots were cropped and the bottom right of the screen was blurred to obscure Kelly Jean Peters cleavage. However, the original version was used in syndicated prints of the series; it has survived and is still occasionally screened. See more »
