NOTES

The concept for the "Police Academy" films came when Maslansky, overseeing production on the 1983 feature "The Right Stuff", noticed that uniformed police cadets--used in the staging of the John Glenn tickertape parade scene--came in every size, color, age and shape and would make ideal characters for a new genre of comedy. The first film was produced for $4.5 million and grossed $82 million domestically and more than $140 worldwide. (Source: THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, March 10, 1989)
