The Muppets Take Manhattan is a 1984 American musical comedy film directed by Frank Oz. It is the third of a series of live-action musical feature films starring Jim Henson's Muppets. The film was produced by Henson Associates and TriStar Pictures, and was filmed on location in New York City during the summer of 1983 and released theatrically the following summer. It was the first film to be directed solely by Oz, as he previously co-directed The Dark Crystal with Henson. The film introduced the Muppet Babies, as toddler versions of the Muppet characters in a fantasy sequence. The Muppet Babies later received their own Saturday morning animated television series, which aired on CBS from 1984 until 1990 and has since been syndicated worldwide.

Private Lessons is the title of an American comedy film released in 1981. The film starred Sylvia Kristel, Howard Hesseman, Eric Brown, and Ed Begley, Jr. The screenplay was written by Dan Greenburg, who wrote the original source novel, Philly. Greenburg appears as the manager of a fleabag motel in the film. Released in 1981, Private Lessons was highly controversial at the time of its release, for its plot line of a sexual relationship between a boy in his early teens and his 30-something housekeeper. It was one of Kristel's few major American film appearances; she was best known for her Emmanuelle films in Europe. In early 2006, a 25th anniversary DVD release was issued in North America.
