Did you know? Until the 1960s American Cinema was quite conservative about using certain scenes that involved full frontal nudity and a few other uncomfortable scenes.

The movie script also abruptly kills the leading lady midway, which again was unconventional around that time 😲

The Mexicans celebrate the 'Day of the Dead' on the first week of November. Floral skulls made of sugar are often used on this day which has been the known tradition since early 1630s. The belief from the age of Mayans is that the gates of heaven are opened on October 31st. The spirits of the deceased are allowed to reunite with their familes for 24 hours. On November 1st is the day for children spirits ( angelitos ) & on November 2nd spirits of adults come down to enjoy the festivities prepared for them. The offerings are paced on a grand alter. On November 1st the alter can be seen with toys and sweets for the angelitos. On November 2nd the alter may contain Tequila, cigars etc. for the grown ups. The feativities during this period are very expensive with families ready to even spend 2 months of their earnings to make the spirits happy.
