According to an article published in Time magazine on November 14th, 1969, Tisa Farrow suffered three mishaps while shooting the film on location, near Toronto. First, she stepped in a groundhog hole and pulled a leg tendon. Then, while hobbling with a cane, she was bitten by a rabid cat which required her to get 16 rabies shots in her stomach. Lastly, she was kicked in the stomach during a fight in a restaurant.See more »
