In the late 1980s, the record label Varese Sarabande issued a special limited edition soundtrack CD for this film of about 1500 copies containing the late Basil Poledouris' musical score. It received high collectible status soon afterwards. In 1997, an anonymous collector purchased this CD for the then record sum for a CD of two thousand five hundred dollars in an auction. The soundtrack has since been reissued through another label in 2004. See more »
When Sam is escaping the Sky Ranch with E. Johnson, Melanie Griffith's character, he is shown lighting a gas can with a rag coming out of it on fire. The first scene the fire is 3/4 the way up the rag and in the next scene it is at the very bottom. See more »

The robot graveyard is over here. I figure eight hours of driving will get us into the yard about four in the morning. It gives you about 15 minutes to find your doll.
At the most. There'll be sirens screaming, patrols everywhere, dogs, you name it, the whole shootin' match.

Urbanite hires crusty lady tracker to find sexy robot
This is the kind of film that gets under your skin. One of a small subgenre of Sci-Fi Westerns, its small flashes of inspired writing make it worth watching some night when there's nothing else to do. Cameron Milzer is particularly notable as a blackly comedic psycho-girlfriend, but Tim Thomerson and Melanie Griffith are no slouches themselves. Pleasant bleak visuals and an interesting score from Basil Poledouris (Robocop, Hunt For Red October, & the Conan films, as well as 60 other movies) make for a modest repeat viewability factor. Fun and stupid!
