This film was pretty much the genesis of the Ron Howard/Brian Grazer/Lowell Ganz/Baboloo Mandel production company, who would later collaborate on films like Splash, Gung Ho, and The Grinch and this film definitely shows promise, but it also shows that these guys were still trying to find their footing as filmmakers.
