    "FLOWER OF EVIL" IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF ADLAI STEVENSON WHO TOOK A GREAT INTEREST IN THE PREPARATION AND PRODUCTION OF THE FILM. ALL THE STARS ARE GIVING THEIR SERVICES (OR BEING PAID THE MINIMUM AMOUNTS UNDER UNION AGREEMENTS) SO THE ACTUAL COST OF THE PRODUCTION WILL BE VASTLY LESS THAN THE MILLION I WOULD HAVE COST IF THE STARS RECEIVED THEIR NORMAL SALARIES.
