An introverted loner living in the bowels of the Astrodome plots to develop - with the aid of a mysterious guardian angel - a pair of wings that will help him fly.
When Brewster and Suzanne are inside the Astroworld theme park, they enter the Lost World River Adventure. This particular theme ride was later renamed the River of No Return in 1976, and officially decommissioned in 1983. Astroworld, part of the Six Flags empire, was closed after 31 October 2005 and the entire park was razed in February 2006.
It was a mess, sir. You should have seen her.
Det. Lt. Frank Shaft: Molested?
Officer Johnson: Molested?
Det. Lt. Frank Shaft: Sexually. Was she sexually assaulted?
Officer Johnson: Oh, no. But, she sure was a mess, sir.
In final scene, as Louise is leaving the Astrodome, and the large, roll-up door opens for her, revealing bright daylight, a stage-hand can be seen operating the door at the far right edge of the scene. This is only visible on wide-screen format; probably only on the LaserDisc.
The opening credits are done twice, followed by the MGM lion opening his mouth to Auberjonois' voice saying, "I forgot the opening line". The opening credits are superimposed over Daphne Heap (Margaret Hamilton) rehearsing "The Star-Spangled Banner" with a marching band in the Astrodome. She stops the song and accuses the band of being on the wrong key. The band begins again, and the credits also start over, with the same titles repeated with the "better" version of the song. One of the opening credits reads: "Title song by Francis Scott Key"
