Linda Blair was 14 when this film was made and 15 when it was released. However, the other girls at the reform school in the film were much older than the ages they portrayed. Two others who are credited were in their mid-20s when this was filmed, as Nora Heflin and Tina Andrews were 24 and 23, respectively, while Janit Baldwin was 18 or 19. All of these girls were older than Mitch Vogel, who was supposedly portraying her 20-year-old brother (he was actually 18 at the time).

The rape scene was deleted after it was blamed for influencing a group of young girls to rape an eight-year-old girl with a bottle.

After the edited re-airings in the 1980s, the movie disappeared from circulation completely. In 2004 VCI Entertainment released it on DVD with the rape scene intact, the first time it had been seen by the general public in 30 years.
