Much of John Barry's soundtrack for the film went unused, after producer Gloria Katz deemed it to be too old-fashioned and lacking in energy. Sylvester Levay was hired to rescore much of the film, including nearly the entire final third act. See more »
When Howard is in Beverly's apartment for the second time he starts a rhythm and bass sequence on one of the gadgets in the apartment to play along with. The machine that produces the rhythm and bass is actually a Roland TR-707 Rhythm Composer which produces a different kind of drum sound (more electronic) and can't produce any bass sounds at all. It is also not capable of sending out MIDI data to drive external equipment like the synthesizer in the apartment to produce the bass sound. See more »
I LOVE Howard. Who is Howrard, you ask? Howard is the Duck.
In this cult classic, Howard the Duck has to come to earth accientally and then he falls in love with the mom from BTTF. I like it because the mom from BTTF the future is a good funny actress and I like it.
Anyway, gotta go! Peace, Howard Nation!
