This film was shot in March 1985 with filming wrapping around April and quickly going into post-production with Paramount releasing the film in August. This would be the first with such a quick turn around schedule to be released that year with the surprise hit, Commando Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger being the other which was released by Fox in October after a quick shooting schedule.
