Trivia

The Gershwin song "Someone to Watch Over Me" is heard in the movie in three separate renditions. They were by: (1) Sting, heard at the start of the film (2) Roberta Flack, heard over the end credits and (3) Gene Ammons with Richard Wyands, Doug Watkins and J.C. Heard, from an original 1961 version. The Sting and Roberta Flack versions were new takes recorded especially for this movie. No movie soundtrack album for Someone to Watch Over Me (1987) was ever released. Sting's version of the song got distributed as the B-side track on his "Englishman in New York" single as well as also being included on the later 1999 compilation album "At The Movies". The Flack rendition of the song has never been officially commercially available other than where it is heard in this movie.
