  • Controversy

    The film was bought by British film distributor David Lewis in 1996 and his firm Unique Films released it on video nationwide. The film contains steamy sex scenes and was filmed when Anderson was still a 19 year old student in drama school. Anderson hired lawyers to help stop the release. The British tabloid press which described it as a "B movie", reported that she attempted to buy it back for "large sums of money" without success. They reported the scenes as "semi-topless". Anderson's partner in the scenes, actor Michael Dolan, reported that the scene was shot at 4 am after a long day and that they were both exhausted. In spite of her embarrassment about the film, Anderson had a clause in her contract stating that her breasts could not be exposed. In spite of all the hoopla, the Orange County Register described the scene as "fleeting" and that the film "deserves better than to serve as a salacious footnote to a television show".
