Actor Jon Voight was not originally going to appear in the film. Whilst working on the second draft of the script with Al Schwartz, it dawned upon Voight to take the part of Alex in the film. Previously, the movie's two writers had struggled to find the right actor to cast in the role of Alex. Voight said: "I never really thought I'd write the role for myself. But I kind of protected myself by writing a part I thought I could play". See more »
The DVD of the Ashby cut of the film (which he'd donated without telling anyone that it had fifteen extra minutes) was released with great fanfare. Finally this film had a chance of being seen in the director's vision.
Except that we are no better off. This is still a horrid film that goes nowhere.
Ashby was a fine director who unfortunately got lost in a drug haze in his later years. Despite the enthusiasm of all concerned in the interviews on the DVD, this is a movie that runs out of steam very early. Voight plays an obnoxious character whom we don't pull for, and Burt Young is wasted as his buddy.
