In the romantic silhouette scene between Commander Hunter and Major Zara, actor Barry Bostwick deployed his right hand to briefly cast a shadow which resembled his genitals in profile. Asked at the time, he claimed it was accidental. However, when interviewed by Sight and Sound, the magazine of the British Film Institute, in 2004, he admitted that it had been an intentional slight towards Director Hal Needham, with whom he was involved in an unprofitable Ponzi scheme.

Well, I know how you feel, and I've been there myself. Let me see. One time before I made a jump into the night, an old buddy of mine told me something that made me feel a whole lot better.
What, what did he tell you to do?
Well, he said, "You love 'em in blue and you love them in red. But most of all you love them in blue."
That's totally inapplicable to anything that's going on here. And it's _dumb_. Who told you that?
But it's very wise. Very wise.

Nothing wrong with comic book movies. Is there? This one is painfully funny if watched with the right attitude. Acting is camp, characters are cardboard camp, plot is Marvel Comics meets 007 camp... and on and on. Anyone who watches this movie and tries to evaluate it as anything but pure camp (Think TVs BATMAN from the 1960s) is in bad need of taste and IQ points. I don't like Hal Needhum films as a rule, but this one hits a popcorn eating mark. I rate this as a rare cult classic right up there with FEARLESS FRANK and XANADU. A real must be seen to be believed. Anyone who enjoys Monster Truck Pulls and exploding outhouses will marvel at the gadgets and tech in this one. Anyone who finds the art of jabbing at live badgers with a dull fork will also be amused. The character of Dallas is the only negative thing in my opinion. I'm a true Southerner...we'd stomp that rebel yell screaming idiot to death in the parking lot if we had to put up with him. Same actor who played Sonny in XANADU...we would've stomped him to death in that one too, roller blades and all. A 7 for pure camp value.
