This no budget film was written and directed by Henny Youngman's son, Gary Youngman. Youngman had hoped to use this short film as a vehicle into mainstream film-making, but instead it provided a platform for the launching of several new stars and starlets.

John Heard, Jill Eikenberry, Tom Berenger and Judith Kahan all turn in the kind of top-flight performances that they will become widely known for in coming years - even though they were either unknown or just becoming known during the shooting of this film.

Supposedly, this film was provided to Showtime at no charge, as a way to get it the widest possible coverage: it worked too! I am not aware of a single screen (not even an indie screen) that booked this film, but it received hundreds of hours of play on Showtime as a filler.

This effort has remained virtually unknown, despite the all-star cast - it's a jewel in the rough, and worth an opportunity to screen it.
