Trivia

Actor Peter Coyote states in the commentary for the film Heart of Midnight (1988); That Eye, The Sky was masterfully made into 'a really lovely film' by the director, but the 'producer abandoned them during the final edit', which resulted in 'a studio hack taking it over, cutting 40 minutes out - making it completely impenetrable - and they blamed the director'.
