Background informationEdit

  • The book was one of a total of sixteen titles, both novels and reference books, that were intended to coincide as a promotional tie-in with the premiere of The Motion Picture on 7 December 1979. (Playboy magazine, January 1980, p. 310) However, due to the film's mixed reception, only about half of these, including this one, were ultimately released.
  • While the official publication date is stated as 28 October 1979, Playboy magazine reported that at the time of the movie's premiere the book had not yet been released to the public. (p. 310)
