The scene were Lorene Rogers (Kim Basinger) answers the door in just a towel was shot several times....because too much "cheek" was showing from under the towel. On an episode of "The Merv Griffin Show" featuring Ms. Basinger and the director of the scene it was contended that there was really nothing wrong with the scene - he just enjoyed seeing her in a towel from behind.

I recall seeing this Television series in Australia during November 1981 when I was 15 and have never ever been privileged to see a repeat. This series was one of the best of it's kind that I have ever seen to date. I do not know what is happening to excellent quality television shows and movies that are not only difficult to find on video, but are not even shown as repeats on television?? I experienced a similar problem with trying to find the movie "Duffy, starring James Coburn". Whenever I tried to research this series, I could never find anything on it, until I checked out this internet movie database with much relief. I do recall the brilliant performances of William Devane (also from the television series Knots Landing), but one that really attracted my attention was seeing Don Johnson for the very first time. I recall the television station highlighting a reminder of what was to be televised and when a brief scene with Don Johnson was shown, my 13 year old kid brother was with me in the room and called out "Is that James Dean?" I was also fooled for a moment. I thought that such a brilliant performance and blend of artists would have warranted this show to be the most talked about series for it's era. I saw both the original and this series, but must say that I enjoyed this one much more. Anyone that is privileged to have videotaped it and has it forgotten somewhere in the attic, is sitting on some television masterpiece.
