“The film? (Change of Habit) … it’s a change of pace for me, yeah. It’s more serious than my usual movies, but it don’t mean I’m aiming for a big dramatic acting scene, no sir. The way I’m headed, I want to try something different now, but not too different. I did this film because the script was good, and I guess I know by now what the public goes for.

“Most of the scripts that come my way are all the same. They’ve all got a load of songs in them, but I just did a western called ‘Charro!’ which hasn’t any songs ‘cepting the title tune. It did have a couple of nude scenes, but they’ve been cut. Anyhow, can you imagine a dramatic western where the hero breaks into song all the time?” — San Francisco Chronicle, June 8, 1969.
