Steven Spielberg created the original story for this film, intending it to be his feature directorial debut. When 20th Century Fox executives assigned the film to another director, Spielberg was so incensed, he swore he would never make a film for Fox. He kept that promise until he directed Minority Report (2002), a co-production between Fox and his DreamWorks. See more »
I saw this in the movie theater when first released. I only went to see it because Pamela Franklin is in it. She is beautiful as always, but the movie is very dull. I still wish they would release it on DVD as I am collecting all of Pamela Franklin's films. It is a shame she gave up acting at such a young age. Perhaps if Spielberg had directed it it would have been far better. As it is this is just a fair film, not very engaging at all. Pamela Franklin fans should watch it just for her. She is absolutely gorgeous in it. Cliff Robertson is OK, but even he is unable to make this film very interesting. Ariane Munker has a very small role. She was in the stage production of Kurt Vonnegut's Happy Birthday Wanda June and TV's Between Time and Timbuktu.
