Director Noel Black described making this film as a series of compromises made in order to please 20th Century Fox. Black originally planned to cast a young, unknown Al Pacino as Tony Hall, but this was just one of the things he had to forsake. Black also disagreed with the ethical issues about filmmaking brought up in the script, wanted to change them but couldn't. See more »
I saw "Cover Me Babe" in its brief first run in New York City. The film was rated "R" due to scenes of sexuality. To the best of my knowledge, if there was a "PG" rated version, it would have be the version edited for television. I interviewed Noel Black, and he told me that "Cover Me Babe" was televised although I did not pursue further information on the broadcast. This would have been in the late 70s. I wrote an article on Noel Black's films in the magazine, Velvet Light Trap, in 1973. The main problem Black had with this film was that he was contractually unable to change the screenplay to more accurately reflect the attitude and film-making style of a student film-maker in the early 70s. Black also noted that his original choice in the lead role was a then unknown Al Pacino. The box office performance of this film was so poor that it is unlikely to be seen again, except, possibly on the Fox Movie Channel.
