  1. I saw this movie in 1979, in San Antonio, Texas, shortly before my 2nd child was born in August of 1979. So why is the release date shown as October 1980? Just wondering.

    1. Hi,

      We got the date from IMDB and Wikipedia which both show October 1980. Could you have seen some sort of advanced screening?

    2. Filming wrapped July 16th 1979 so I hardly beleive they can have shown an early version THAT early.. Are you absolutely sure it was this movie and that year?

      1. Well, with the right pocket watch, someone might be able to swing that!
