Trivia

A broadcast of the film in Israel in the early 90's was disrupted and discontinued. It was later announced that was due to a complaint received by the IBA (the Israeli Broadcasting Authority - its government national broadcaster) that some of the characters resemble antisemitic imagery. There hasn't been a broadcast on the Israeli national broadcast since. See more »
