When Sharon Tate
arrived in Rome for filming near the end of March 1969, she was about three months pregnant and beginning to show. Because the script called for several semi-nude scenes, the director arranged to film those scenes first. As filming (and her pregnancy) progressed, the director obscured Tate's stomach with large purses and scarves. This is most apparent in the scene following her ride in the furniture mover's van.

Both versions of the film ("12 + 1" and "The 13 Chairs") have completely different opening and ending title sequences, in terms of fonts and placements. For example, in the opening on the former, the "12 + 1" logo appears one by one in the shot of Mario crossing the street, while in the other version, the logo appears 16 seconds into the film. The ending on the "12 + 1" version has the words "THE END" placed right before the end credits, and right after the freeze-frame, as opposed to the other version, that has "THE END" appear right after the end credits. In addition, both beginning and ending titles for the "12 + 1" version have names and companies that were not credited on the other version, and vice-versa. Both versions even feature different shots of the hair salon in the opening. See more
