Condon wrote a magazine article about this movie production around 1980 that makes it ten times as strange as the story itself. Among other details:
The movie was financed with money from cocaine dealers.
When the production went over budget, the executive producer brought in additional "financiers", then was able to keep the crews working for two weeks - in New York - with no pay. Jeff Bridges and Tony Perkins both offered their salaries as collateral.
After the film was finished, the studio was purchased by a bigger studio which then ultimately declined to release it. At one point, at a test preview at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, passers by were being offered $1 to watch the movie.
A few months later, the executive producer was found in a New York hotel room, handcuffed to a bed, with two bullets in his head.
