    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Martin Landau's stunt double during the fight with Sudow in the warehouse definitely doesn't look like Landau, being broader across the shoulder. At least a couple of front shots definitely reveal his face isn't much like Landau's.

      • Trivia: Barney is mentioned briefly in the opening briefing as having prepared Cinnamon's special cameras, but doesn't appear.

      • Trivia: Dan's briefing is on a record that dissolves after sixty seconds' exposure to the air. The photos are in developer trays that become visible after exposed to the darkroom red light.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Dan: Think, and Rollin, don't limit your thinking. He didn't. This plan is designed to get you into the same kind of spot under the same kind of pressure. And hope inspiration hits.
        Rollin: And not bullets.
