The Forbidden Dance (1990) Poster

Trivia

Written in 10 days, based on an idea writers John Platt & Roy Langsdon came up with in the car on the drive to producer Menahem Golan's office. The script was commisioned in December of 1989, was in production by the end of January, 1990, and hit theaters on March 17th that same year, all in an attempt to beat rival lamdada flick Lambada (1990) to theaters. Both films were eventually released on the very same day!

Lambada (1990) producers sued successfully to have the word "Lambada" removed from "The Forbidden Dance"'s official title, though only "The Forbidden Dance" uses the song "Lambada" which became involved in the Lambada dance craze of the 1970s-early 1990s.
