  • This is one of my all-time favorite covers, painted by the awesome Boris Vallejo.
  • There are several releases of this film on VHS from Warner Home Video. Most notably the original Warner clam shell release, a 1995 re-release with similar box art style to the 1986 release which substitutes Chevy Chase on the spine in place of Christie Brinkley, and a Warner Bros. Hits version released in 1999.
  • The 1980-1986 Warner Home Video ident precedes the movie.
