      • Passenger Clint Takahashi's wife is played by Elizabeth Meyer (no dialogue; uncredited), Paul Michael Glaser's then-girlfriend who would go on to be his wife in 1980. Tragically, Elizabeth Glaser died of complications from AIDS in 1994 after receiving an HIV-tainted blood transfusion in 1981. Sadly, the disease also claimed the couple's 7-year-old daughter Arial in 1988.

      • The shot of Starsky and Hutch on their bill-board as Hack and Zack, (with Hutch sitting on a stool, and Starsky leaning up against him, against a blue background), is a commonly used first season publicity shot of the pair for the series.

      • Although not evident on-screen, David Soul actually has his ankle taped up in this episode, after he broke it during filming 'Little Girl Lost', shown later in the season but the episode filmed prior to this story.

      • Charles Picerni (mobster Nicky Cairo), as well as being an actor, is also a renowned stuntman. He was the stunt co-ordinator for the series, and usually worked as Paul Michael Glaser (Starsky's) stunt double. He's been seen on-screen in an uncredited part in the first season's "Death Ride", and has another dialogue-less part in a few episodes such as as an officer in "The Specialist". Charles' real-life brother Paul plays Nicky's on-screen brother, Patsy.

      • This story was originally broadcast as a feature-length adventure. It exists in official feature-length and two-part versions. Unlike 'The Las Vegas Strangler', U.K. broadcaster Five (who's run is the basis for most of this episode guide), broadcast the feature-length version of this story, which they themselves had edited into two parts (as opposed to the "official" two part version of 'The Las Vegas Strangler'). As a result, the listed guest cast is for the entire story – not just for characters that appear in the relevant half.
