Writer Barry Schneider who'd worked with director Lester before added much of the "Clockwork Orange" stuff in the film, like when Stegman says "I am the future". Unfortunately, Schneider’s contribution to “Class of 1984” was never formally credited because after viewing a screening of the film, he angrily demanded to have his name taken off the credits. "Barry saw the film and he was horrified. absolutely disgusted" recalled Lester "he thought it was the worst piece of garbage he’d ever seen."
