The car that Valdez picks up before the wild ride with McCloud is a Jaguar D-Type, a popular race car and LeMans contender in the 1950s but obsolete by the time of the film's release in 1964. See more »
During the car and train chase scene where Valdez (Wallach) is driving Thad McClound (MacMurray) along a remote 2 lane road showing off the speed of Valdez's sports car, a police cruiser or crew auto, can be seen blocking between the road and a railroad crossing so that no cross traffic can pass into the train's path.

One joke comedy of female President and confused hubby
This is a one-joke film with Polly Bergen as the first woman to become President of the United States and Fred MacMurray as the befuddled "First Gentleman." It runs out of steam early on. An inexplicable Oscar nom went to the costumes, although there weren't any-just everyday clothing. It is worth seeing, however, for Bergen's few scenes as the no-nonsense, hard as nails President in her decision-making sequences. She'd have made a good one!
