movie starring Perry King, Tim Van Patten, Roddy McDowall
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."
The filming of "Class of 1984" began in 1981, with a budget of 4.3 million.
Desert Storm war correspondent Arthur Kent was a producer on the film.
When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
