Contradictory information[edit]

In the sleeve note of the new DVD release (also posted at: http://www.frankzappa200motelsdvd.com/), co-writer and director Tony Palmer contradicts much of the information in the article, claiming it is misinformation (some generated by Zappa himself) passed down and retold. Palmer claims that he was not fired and did not quit, and that the master tapes were not erased and sold to recoup costs, but remained in his posession. It would be worth obtaining references for the current article, and mentioning these competing claims. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.23.135.119 (talk) 20:54, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Sometime in the early 1980s I was told the master 2-inch PAL videotapes were in the vault at TVI, a facilities house in London's Wardour Street. I have no idea whether the DVD is a transfer from the videos or from the film. Which is it? Delverie (talk) 15:41, 24 October 2011 (UTC)

low budget?[edit]

$679,000 bucks was not a small amount of money in 1971. The $5000 George Romero supposedly spent on Night of the Living Dead in '68 might qualify as low budget, but $700K in that period certainly doesn't. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.34.181.212 (talk) 01:54, 5 January 2011 (UTC)
