Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (1)
The movie was actually filmed with Farrah Fawcett in it as a former Delta Gamma, but after poor audience testing the film was re-edited just prior to its release to remove all of her scenes. According to the Fulvue Drive-in website, "Originally, Farrah Fawcett was prominently featured in the film, in what was more or less a major love interest for Wilder's character. She was cut out at the last minute, explaining why this film is so choppy".
