Trivia: During the title sequence, as Millie is buying a pack of cigarettes from a vendor her undergarment breaks, the vendor stares at her in surprise, and she does a slight curtsy and walks away. When the film was originally released, that was followed by a quick shot of the vendor looking down and seeing Millie's broken undergarment lying on the sidewalk, but for some unknown reason that shot has been deleted, at least from the version on VHS and the one shown on TV. (I don't know whether it is included on DVD.).
