Vanity has since left Hollywood behind her. She is now a born again Christian, artist, and preacher.
A few years later Carl Weathers made a similar action film in Australia with a similar character to Action Jackson called Hurricane Smith

One of the henchman in the film, is played by David Glenn Eisley. He's the one with the long blonde hair. He was the lead singer of the band Giuffria. They had a hit in 1984 with the song "Call to the Heart".

Three cast members from "Die Hard" appear in this movie as well as 3 cast members from "Predator". Both of which were also produced by Joel Silver.

Director Craig R. Baxley's name can be seen several times at the end of each episode of cult 80s TV series "The A Team", on which he was Stunt Coordinator and Second Unit Director.

Later, he would test his directing chops directing an episode of that TV series, but surely he must hold the record for coordinating the most flipped/barrel-roll vehicle stunts ever..?

Bogus Trivia

There's often fake stuff floating round, y'know? -Like the 'ghost boy' that can allegedly be seen in "Three Men And A Baby".

But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "Action Jackson".
