When this movie was in development at Universal Pictures, this film's lead actress Pia Zadora was making controversial headlines in the media with Butterfly (1982). This movie was Pia Zadora's final big movie role as a leading actress in a cinema movie, Zadora's other films being not significant theatrical releases. See more »

[Jerilee's mother comes to the hospital after Jerilee's nervous breakdown]
A neighbor brought her in, Mrs. Randall. She was suffering from paranoia and hallucinations.
There's never been anything like that on my side of the family.
Her condition was drug induced at the time. Tranquilizers, cocaine, amphetamines, alcohol. Would you know about her... eh... problems?
She's always been difficult.

How bad is it? Well, I lived in central Pennsylvania during Hurricane Agnes in 1970, the Great Blizzard of 1993, and was in northern Vermont for the Ice Storm of 1998. Someday, my grandkids will ask, "Grandpa, what was it like?" and I will say, "Well, it was bad. But not as bad as watching 'The Lonely Lady!'"
I worry that someday the world will see a major nuclear war. And if it does, the survivors will say while digging out, "That was horrible. But come to think of it, it wasn't as horrible as 'The Lonely Lady!'"
Please folks, if you want to see an '80s flick with lots of skin, see "Summer Lovers." Do NOT see this film unless watching a dwarfish leading lady getting raped and spouting unendurable dialog to a bargain basement cast is your idea of an enjoyable movie experience.
