Louisa Moritz (Carmela) also appeared in the 1981 slasher film, "New Year's Evil," where she pleaded with the killer to spare her life. Luckily, she did manage to escape being slashed (as opposed to LAV castmate Lawrence Monoson, who met an unfortunate fate in front of a stag movie screen in "Friday the 13th Part 4").

Lawrence Monoson appeared in the season 1 episode of Star Trek Enterprise "Fortunate Son" as Matthew Ryan of the starship "Fortunate". He looks completely different and is hard to recognize.

Millie (Winifred Freedman), the overweight girl Gary tried to cop a feel with also starred as the driver's ed student, Stephanie, in the "Naked Gun" (I'm sure you remember her in the hilarious scene when the truck driver gives her a hard time and her instructor calmly and patiently tells her to flick him off).
Notice any time Gary and/or Rick & David are carrying the pizza boxes, there's very little effort to carry them because there's nothing in them! They could've put something in the boxes or faked, like it was more work to carry them.

In the scene where Rick and Gary swindle Victor into using his car..he says" Careful with this baby, I just had her painted, cost me my last buck!" but if you watch the scenes that follow, you see that the car is a totally banged up beater!!

Steve Antin starred as Detective Nick Savino in NYPD Blue from 1994-1998. Antin also has had a very prolific career as a stunt person in the following films: "Breakin'" (uncredited stunt breaker), "Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo" (uncredited stunt breaker: Cabbager Patch & The Jerry Lewis), "Teen Wolf" (uncredited, utility stunts), Teen Wolf Too (uncredited, stunts of the Wolf), Dances with Wolves (uncredited, stunts of the Wolf) & Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style (uncredited, dance stunts for Screech). He wrote the screenplay for the film "Gloria" and also made a TV guest appearance on 21 Jump Street. Steve Antin also appeared in the 80's movie "The Goonies" as Troy. He also played one of Jodie Foster's rapists in "The Accused"
It is very obvious that after shooting LAV, Lawrence Monoson got a nose job & fixed his teeth because when you see him in Friday the 13th Part 4: The Final Chapter, he's not really recognizable at first.
Filming must've taken longer than anticipated (or there were re-shoots) because Lawrence Monoson looks really young in some of the scenes & his hair is shorter (e.g. the locker room scene & the scene in which he asks David for Karen's address). But in other scenes, he looks a little older & his hair is longer (e.g. the party that he gets really upset & wasted at & the scene in which he lets the air out of one of the tyres on Karen's moped). There are a couple of other scenes where he looks even older & has a tan (e.g. the beginning of the film when he's delivering pizzas & the scene when he comes home drunk).

Diane Franklin is actually deaf in one ear. That is why she does not ride her moped or a bike in the movie. Being deaf in one ear, disrupts your inner balance.
