Rita Mae Brown wrote a screenplay for a parody of teen/slasher flicks, and titled it "Sleepless Nights". However, when she submitted it to the producers, they filmed it as if it weren't a parody, and retitled it "Slumber Party Massacre".

Marvel Comic's THE LIBERTY LEGION Featuring Captain America's young ally, Bucky     This super hero team was first created in 1976 but was set during World War II. The team consisted of existing heroes back from Marvel's 1940s Golden Age of Comic Books.   "America's Homefront Heroes of World War II", the Liberty Legion consisting of mostly obscure Timely Comics (pre-Marvel) superheroes, rather than stars like Captain America, the Sub-Mariner, and the original Human Torch, and sidekicks. The Liberty Legion, indeed, included only two of even the company's secondary tier — the Whizzer and Miss America, who in late-1940s comics were members of Timely's first superteam, the All-Winners Squad. In the team's modern-day retcon origin, the...
