  • Writer/director David Lynch originally conceived Mulholland Drive as a pilot for a television series. After it was rejected by ABC, Lynch added an ending and filmed additional scenes to make it a feature film. The half-pilot, half-feature result, along with Lynch's characteristic style, has left the general meaning of the movie's events open to interpretation. Lynch has declined to offer an explanation of his intentions for the narrative, leaving audiences, critics and cast members to speculate on what transpires in the film.

  • Ann Miller's final film.
  • Betty and Rita were chosen by the Independent Film Channel as the emblematic romantic couple of the 2000s.
  • Mulholland Drive was released on DVD and Blu-ray as part of The Criterion Collection in 2015.
