Illusion Infinity was labeled as biopic; however, it's an original story and screenplay by Roger Steinmann he wrote 1997-2000 about the supposed real Las Vegas-singer Patricia Paradise.
In December 2000, principal photography started in Hollywood with newcomer Jolie Jackunas as Patricia; Edward Albert in the triple-role as Francis, Douglas and Henry; Ray Walston as Simon; and Eddie Albert as Henry Sr.
Illusion Infinity would have marked the first pairing of this Hollywood-legend with his actor-son Edward, if not the untimely death of 'Favorite Martian'-Ray Walston on Jan 1, 2001 would have put an immediate stop to the production.
With the help of veteran casting director Gerald I. Wolff, a new cast was eventually assembled  Mickey Rooney replaced both Ray Walston and Eddie Albert as playing both characters Simon and Henry Sr., and Timothy Bottoms assumed the altered screenplay's quintuple-roles, including older Alan and young Patricia's father when filming resumed in November 2002.
