    • Three of the songs the Mamas and the Papas performed (My Heart Stood Still/Sing For Your Supper/Here in My Arms) appear on the DVD "California Dreamin': The Songs of the Mamas & the Papas," released March 29, 2005 by Universal Music. It also includes comments from Michelle & John Phillips regarding their involvement in the "Rodgers & Hart Today" show.

    • According to a studio technician The Mamas and the Papas were so stoned they had a hard time lip-synching their songs, especially Mama Cass.

    • Although no soundtrack album was issued The Mamas and the Papas recorded most of their songs, one of which, Glad to Be Unhappy, was their last Top 40 hit-it went to #26 in 1967. The Supremes recorded material for a 2-record set but only a single album was originally released, in June 1967, as The Supremes Sing Rodgers & Hart (Motown M-659/MS-659). In 1986 a CD was released with most of the extra material as The Rodgers & Hart Collection and in 2002 as The Supremes Sing Rodgers & Hart-The Complete Collection with, at least, one version of every Rodgers & Hart song the Supremes recorded at Motown.
