The original production title of "Fame" was "Hot Lunch"! But the title was changed because director Alan Parker heard of an adult film called "Hot Lunch", and decided that "Fame" was a more appropriate title.
Thanks to Leslie
Gene Anthony Ray had landed the role of LeRoy, at age 17, after skipping school to attend the audition.

Irene Cara Recalls about Director Alan Parker:

"Alan was very serious about being as real as possible.

A lot of the scenes were filmed when we didn't know the cameras were running so that he could capture a lot of our real, organic rapor with each other"
