Alan Solomon was picked out of a crowd and given the role of "game master" Leon based solely upon his unusual looks. In real life, Solomon went on to supervise and produce a variety of game shows. See more »

I recently found a copy of this movie on video in the $5 bin at Walmart. Naturally, because I grew up watching this movie, I now proudly own a copy. Yes, it is cliche, campy, and a little silly, but it is a lot of fun. The whole idea of a scavenger hunt around LA is awesome. Some college kids at the University of Central Florida stage a Midnight Madness of their own every year around the city of Orlando. What a shame I go to the University of South Florida in Tampa!
The movie just goes to show that you can watch a movie without gratuitous sex and violence and have a good time, even if you say to yourself, "I saw that coming!" There is something to be said for movies like this and Cannonball Run.. They just don't make em' like they used to. Gees, I sound like my mother! Happy viewing.
