Just watched Stitches. It was directed by Rod Holcomb (his cv includes mostly tv stuff) but he chose to give it the Alan Smithee treatment. I don´t quite understand why because it´s pretty funny med school T&A flick.
Starring Parker Stevenson, Geoffrey Lewis, Brian Tochi, Robert Dubac, Tommy Koenig, Eddie Albert and the HOT ladies Robin Dearden and Rebecca Perle as Bambi Bilenca.
Murray Langston (Officer Melvin White/The Unknown Comic from Night Patrol) also has a short but very funny scene. I love this guy!
Henry Small sings the theme tune "Sometimes You Win" which is pretty good.
I've not long got done watching this and I agree I don't understand why the director decided to remove his name from the credits and go with a Alan Smithee credit as while it's not classic T&A comedy it does have its fair share of funny moments and the cast is solid with some well known faces amongst it!
Good fun and mentioning about the microphone boom problems witnessed on the trailer it did pop up a few times in the version I watched on YouTube so the VHS as Atomik mentions is certainly the best format to watch it on as there's never been a DVD/Blu release as far I know anyway!
Did actually watch this back in the late 80s but could remember very little from it and on revisiting it's actually not a bad little watch! 6.5/10
