*The pilot based on this movie premiered May 26, 1984 with a different yet similar cast and is a must-see if you enjoyed the movie. We'll have more about it on Saturday.

*Jon Gries, AKA Dirty Curt, was 26 when the movie aired.

*Poison Ivy, an NBC TV movie with Michael J. Fox and Nancy McKeon, premiered February 10, 1985--just before Back to the Future!

*I'm sure Multicom Entertainment is a fine upstanding company...but I wonder why a big media company has a website that my browser says is not secure.
