Goof: As the bus comes to a stop to let the two escaped prisoners off, the stage lighting can be clearly seen reflected on the side of the bus.
Goof: When the Highway Patrol officers come to a stop where the women ran when they got off the bus, as they exit their cars and walk back toward the rear of the cars, the mic boom can be seen moving over the second car's rear windshield.
The young man bent on revenge is a very young & virtually unknown Robert Conrad! Although he isn't easily recognizable at this age, his voice is.

During the car chase near the end of the episode the hubcap comes off Dan Mathews patrol car as he turns a corner. A few minutes later when the chase ends, the hubcap is back in place.
The robbers/kidnappers apparently are oblivious to the fact that their attempted getaway is being tracked from the air by a (very noisy) police helicopter, even when the low flying copter's shadow crosses the highway directly in front of their car.
Goof: A highway patrolman, while pursuing kidnappers at high speed on a winding mountain road, is seen driving with one hand, firing at least 10 shots from a 6-shot revolver.
Goof: One of the men to be killed is standing at arm's length from the assassin (who has not yet drawn his gun) holding a potato rake with the prongs pointed at the killer when he learns that he is about to be killed. Yet, he walks several steps away and then tries to take a full swing with the rake at the killer, who draws his pistol and shoots the victim. The man could have easily jabbed the assassin in the neck or face with the tines of the rake and in real life would have. But the director has him walk away instead.
Despite the fact that facial hair was relatively uncommon when this episode was filmed, none of the people asked by Mathews for a description of the killer mentioned that he had a mustache! This information would have been helpful to Mathews when he boards a bus that the killer is on and finds two men matching the description he has been given (but one is clean-shaven).
Broderick Crawford sports a dark spot on the left side of his head in this episode, just below his receding hairline. It looks as though it might have been a scab from an abrasion to his head. The mark is not mentioned in the episode.
About 22 minutes into this episode, the suspect Pop runs to put a "Closed" sign in the door of a cafe that has a sign on the front that says, "We Never Close".
Around six minutes into this episode, Chief Mathews is seen for the first time, sitting in the Highway Patrol station. A very obvious mark is on the bridge of Broderick Crawford's nose, which isn't addressed in the dialog and apparently the makeup department didn't try to cover.
Six year old Julie hands her mother a letter for Santa Claus addressed, North Pole, U.S.A. yet the North Pole is not in the U.S.A but in the international waters of the Arctic Sea.

When the two robbers are about to open the doors to the panel truck, the reflection of the mic boom can be seen in the left door glass window.
Goof: At approximately 24:40 into the show, as Mathews' patrol car is seen from a distance on a mountain road, a door slam is suddenly heard close up to the camera, yet no car is seen, only the car in the distance.
Officer Johnson's call sign in this episode is 42-48
The name of the used car lot where Miss Nielsen is to meet with the killers is Danny's Used Cars.
At approximately 9 minutes into the show, Chief Mathews is seen driving away from the parking lot of a book store. It's clear that the driver of the car is NOT Broderick Crawford, but someone filling in for the star, who is probably not even on set for the three second shot.
The wanted car is owned by a Theo Nielsen, who owns the book store Nielsen's at 921 Main Street. When the exterior of the book store is shown, the show uses a real book shop, complete with it's phone number posted on the front: WY-5560. It also appears that production put a strip of gaffers tape over the first "5" to mask the number, making it look like it could be an "8" or a "3".
The license number of the car Frank Handley painted was 2N57516
