The film was originally to take place in several locations, but after a budget cut, was condensed to a single location.
The original script was titled "The Brad and Janet Show", which was virtually the same, except with Brad and Janet's lines almost completely reversed. Bert Schnick was originally written to be Dr. Everett (von) Scott, also an ex-Nazi.

To get the authentic sound of American fans for the studio audience chorus of "Denton U.S.A.," Americans from the US Air Force Bases in England were recruited to record the chorus. I was a USAF Captain, and traveled with a group from RAF Upper Heyford, near Oxford, to London in 1980 to record the chorus refrain. A group of about 50 men and women, active duty and their spouses spent the day on this small piece. We were paid nicely and had a free lunch as well!

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.
