Trivia In October of 1996 a fire broke out on a late Saturday afternoon in the New York studios of WNBC-TV (Channel 4). A station staffer quickly put a cassette of this film in the tape player on his way out of the building. The film played uninterrupted twice, much to the confusion of viewers. See more »
