Originally actor Warren Beatty wanted to play the lead role and was attached to portray Jake Van Dorn. However, Beatty wanted Paul Schrader to rewrite the script so he would be either the girl's brother or boyfriend and would be searching instead for either his sister or his girlfriend and not his daughter. When Schrader refused, Beatty passed on the project. Beatty then went onto star, co-script and co-direct his own production of Heaven Can Wait (1978). See more »
Panties suddenly appear on Niki's fully nude body in the peep booth. This goof is seen on old video and cable un-matted versions. (On DVD, the portion showing that Nikki has panties is properly cropped out and doesn't show.) See more »
After seeing 8 mm I decided to check this out- Scott does a good job of portraying the distraut father who a detective has found showing up in porno flicks. A believable portrait of the lengths a dad will go to save his daughter from what he perceives is a life of depravity. Peter Boyle is a good addition to this- making the world seem real... all its players and the picture given of "the life" is seamy and real- especially how he dumps the girl who helped him find his daughter. One scene that really got to me was when Scott had to watch the scenes with his daughter in the movie- how he squirmed in his seat- revolted but attracted to the lurid details...a movie that uncovers and disturbs
