When asked about It! (soon to be released on DVD) for my book Fantasy Femmes of Sixties Cinema, saucy Jill Haworth quipped,
“I only did this film because I needed the money. I hated everything about this movie—particularly what they did to my hair. They gave me an atrocious hairstyle for it.
But I did like Roddy McDowall. He was very nice to work with. And with Roddy, what you see is what you got. He even brought me the poster for It! on the opening night of Cabaret [the original Broadway musical where Jill played Sally Bowles]. I couldn’t believe they were going to release it. He signed it and put an S-h before the It! This film really was a piece of shit.”
