Some random ROLLS ROYCE BABY trivia

Just a random trivia nugget regarding Rolls Royce Baby: The exterior of Lina Romay's luxurious mansion in the film is actually Villa Wesendonck, originally the home of Richard Wagner's benefactor and most important financial backer Otto Wesendonck and since 1952 is part of the Rietberg Museum in Zurich.

Eagle-eyed viewers who've also viewed Dario Argento's Phenomena will recognise the cinematic use of this historical building again, fittingly as 'The Richard Wagner School for Girls'.

Thanks, Michelle. Didn't know of this cultural history behind this title!
