This was the final big-screen film produced by MTM Enterprises. When it was originally released, the company had already been purchased by the Television South (TVS) Corporation of London, England. The MTM empire would be in business for just nine more years, after which they were purchased by 21st Century Fox, Inc. (then doing business as NewsCorp) and absorbed into 20th Century Fox. Warner Bros., which co-produced and originally distributed the film, still owns it. See more
