Trivia of Private Lessons

- The trailers and commercials for this film were narrated by 'Jay Stewart (I)' (qv), the TV game show announcer who at the time was working for Barry-Enright Productions, producers of this movie.

- Near the beginning, after Philip is watching Sylvia through binoculars he is looking through a fashion magazine with half-naked women. The model he is looking at in the pages is 'Gia Carangi' (qv), who was a famous model in the early 80s. A film was made about her (_Gia (1998) (TV)_ (qv)).

- While most of the movie was filmed in the Pheonix, Arizona area the production had to cross the border into New Mexico to film the love scenes as the age of consent in Arizona is 18 and in New Mexico it is 16.

- 'Howard Hesseman' (qv) wore a wig in this film.

- Another actor was originally cast as Phillip, but was fired after eighteen days of shooting and was subsequently replaced by 'Eric Brown (I)' (qv).

- Jack Barry received a lot of hate mail for this film from people who were disgusted by its content. He never made another film again because of it.

- Filmed in early 1980, released in 1981. Full Trivia >>
