Thomas: This information is correct. As explained in the film's Los Angeles Times review (http://articles.latimes.com/1987-12-08/entertainment/ca-27312_1_movie-trouble-spies), the movie was filmed in 1984 but did not get a theatrical release until 1987, two years after cast member Ruth Gordon had died.
