* CreatorKiller: Before the release of the movie, Willard Huyck had directed three movies, and he and wife Gloria Katz (who co-wrote ''Howard the Duck'') had collaborated with Creator/GeorgeLucas on many projects like ''Film/AmericanGraffiti'', ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'' and even ''Film/ANewHope''. Since the failure of ''Howard'', they haven't worked on a single theatrical release, with their only subsequent credit being ''Radioland Murders'' -- and even then they only got credit based on a draft of the screenplay dating back to 1974.

* MoneyDearBoy: Creator/GeorgeLucas pushed for this film's wide release to pay of the debts for his divorce and the expansive Skywalker Ranch he had just had built (which had also cost him his Creator/{{Pixar}} division, which Steve Jobs and ex-Disney animator Creator/JohnLasseter bought, and it would be 26 years before the two companies were fully reunited under Disney's banner).
