NOTES

"Director Rich Correll compares the interplay of White and VelJohnson to Laurel and Hardy's. Be careful, though, about weight references. VelJohnson is frank about being a food lover since childhood (`People say Christmas is their favorite time of year. Thanksgiving is mine'). But he won't play along with cruel fat jokes. He walked off the set once because he wanted the line `I want to lie here and flatten the sofa' softened to `I want to lie here and DENT the sofa.' The line was changed. `I've always had respect for people who don't let their weight get in the way of their work,' says VelJohnson, who reveres such hefty figures as Orson Welles and Jackie Gleason." (From "Heavyweight Champion" in PEOPLE, 3/2/92)
