Sara Costa's range firing scenes were filmed on the Alhambra Police Department's shooting range in South El Monte, CA. All scenes shot involved real, live fire, using a Smith and Wesson, Model 19, .357 Magnum revolver. The director wanted to show her firing an impressive score, so it was decided that the instructor, (Patrick Alexander) would be off camera shooting the target which would then be inserted as if it was fired by Sara. In fact she was doing very well in her firearms self defense training, and the target that was shown in the final cut was actually shot by Sara Costa. See more »
Director Jerome Gary produced "PUMPING IRON" (which put 'Arnold' on the map) and writer Charles Gaines also wrote "PUMPING IRON" and "STAY HUNGRY" (1975). - Cinematographer Ed Lachman needs no introduction, and Academy Award winner Haskell Wexler did the 2nd unit photography, among others. - My favorite line was, "Hey Buddy, how's your LUNCH!?" It came with a great set-up, which kept me laughing for days. - As another reviewer here said, this isn't a sex-film but a documentary; and another reviewer called it a female "ROCKY." I agree with both. - This is not a cheaply made film, as you can see by reading the end credits. Didn't count everyone but there must have been over a hundred people on the crew. And it shows. - This is about as well-made as they come. One of the best. - KC Remington Micanopy, FL
