Julie Andrews loves fresh flowers, and convinced Garry Marshall to use only real flowers in the arrangements inside Rinaldi Castle. During the filming, she was constantly adjusting the arrangements, removing dying blossoms, etc. The centerpiece of the kitchen table (in the scene where Nicholas tops his chocolate mousse) got switched from a large piece (as seen in the background) to the cluster of small flowers seen in the final cut – the original arrangement got in the way of the filming.
Mia is shown practicing archery. In more distant shots, the string of the bow can be seen. In close-ups, however, the bow has no string.

trip to fantasy land with no worries about sex, blood, or blue language?
Take this film at face value and you'll enjoy it. If you can't do that,
don't bother seeing it. There are plenty of other "profound" movies out
there to inspire, teach, or depress you! Go for a good time and you'll have
