Rothman originally wrote the script, then entitled Carhops, while she was at Dimension Pictures. She took it with her when she left Dimension in 1975 and sold it to some producers, only to have them hire Barbara Peeters as director instead. The movie was retitled due the fact there was another film released with the same title. Rothman took her name off the movie, using a pseudonym, as she felt "there was not an idea, a scene, a word, or even a comma left from my original script."[1]
