Continuity mistake: In the first scene with Stella and Buddy Love at the Purple Pit, Stella's eye shadow is bright blue and extends above her eyebrows. When the scene moves to the hill above the city, her eye shadow switches between nonexistent and a light green.
Trivia: While the principal of the school is going through the list of everyone performing at the prom, he mentions a comedy duo, and says "Oh, I thought they split up." A wry reference to the earlier break up of Martin & Lewis.
Trivia: When Professor Kelp holds the pile of tests and fantasizes about Stella as she stands in the doorway waiting for the stream of students, the test facing the camera has a caricature of Jerry Lewis.
