This film was slated to premiere in April 1991 to coincide with Liza Minnelli's record-breaking 3 week engagement at New York's Radio City Music Hall which was entitled "Stepping Out at Radio City." Alas, the reins at Paramount Pictures changed hands, the premiere was pushed to October 1991, and when the film was given a token platform release. When it did not open to huge numbers, Paramount lost interest. See more
