Did You Know?

This was the only theatrical feature film for Kathy Dunn. The rest of her short career was made up of stage and television work.See more »
Factual errors: When Candy's father shot into the limousine door lock to break Candy out and save her from the bomb, she crouched down in the back seat and hid directly behind the door lock so that he was shooting directly at her head from only a couple of feet away, instead of moving to the far side of the back seat to get away from the door. At that range, his shot should have gone through the door and hit her in the head.See more »
Movie Connections:


In the U.S. version during the pre-credit sequence, Candy is driving the bus, but in releases in other parts of the world (England, Sweden, Germany, and others), different girls get to drive. Why?

Saw this movie as a young kid in Scotland and it stuck, 27 June 2000
Author: clattymanky from Canada

I saw this movie in the early 70's. I remembered the movie was about 13 girls and one of them had a cat. She played quite the little detective and got into some real misadventures. Leaving her mark as Kitten by dipping her cat's paw in ink. I loved it and would like to get my hands on it sometime soon. Great movie for young kids into detective suspense stuff. I'm glad I found this site because finding this movie has been a monkey on my back for over 20 years.
