I just found the following details about some "behind-the-scenes events" in a discussion to this episode on YouTube. Though I do not know whether the source is reliable, I at least tend to think there may be some truth in it. Judge by yourselves:

"May have been from an old People Magazine, [...] Apparently the first couple of times the spanking was tried for Shooting, it did not look authentic so Joan, being a trooper, said go for it, make it look real. Pernell was reluctant so Joan hatched a plan to loosen him up. She really hit him in the gut to make the spanking look authentic. Apparently it so annoyed & suprised him that he blew his line and actually smacked her hard 5 or 6 times. Listen to the last 2 smacks - one whimpy and one good one! It worked a little too well, she said she felt it for days!"

I read somewhere also that she said that spanking hurt! I guess that poke in the gut made him mad!

:laughing That's crazy and yet funny too. I'm sure not a lot of women would be willing to do that nowadays.

I like this one. Not so much for the spanking or the other physical humor but for the talent these guest stars brought to the set.

Wow - I guess that's what's called method acting? It would seem it works. :grin

So wonderful when they spank him for real! :rotfl I'm listening to this episode now. Seen it before, but had to do it again. So funny! :rotfl

Love the way they're taking off on Shakespeare in this one. There are so many hilarious moments. Some of my favorites are:
. Margarita's connections coming to Adam on their knees and Adam saying "Oh, get up!".
. Adam acting so solicitous of Margarita over breakfast while he does everything he can to upset her.
. Adam pushing Margarita, and later Don Luis into the water...then getting pushed in himself!

Joan Hackett was such a great actress and a beautiful woman. She was a perfect Margarita.
