Some movie posters featured a man and woman embracing in the sea wearing surgical gowns and masks spoofing the famous beach waves romancing scene in From Here to Eternity
(1953). Taglines for this movie poster read "From here to maternity...". Moreover, a working title for the previous year's comedy picture Paternity
(1981) was "From Here to Paternity" with that working title also being a spoof of the classic Hollywood film From Here to Eternity
(1953). Further , two filmed productions with that classic title had also just been recently made and broadcast prior to both Paternity
(1981) and Young Doctors in Love
(1982) [See: From Here to Eternity
(1979) and From Here to Eternity
(1980)]. See more
