Did You Know?
There really is a town called Ludlow, in the right area in Champaign County, IL, and the town Paxton is just north of it in Ford County. They are also near Chanute AFB, where reporter Audrey Aimes (Peggie Castle
) was headed at the beginning of the film. See more
Some editions (the MST3K episode at the very least) omit a short scene about 8 minutes in where Audrey tries to sneak some photographs of Ludlow and is caught by an officer who confiscates her camera. With this scene removed, there is an apparent continuity error when she later tells Col. Sturgeon that her camera was confiscated when she was there, then shows up at the checkpoint again to retrieve it. See more
