When Abraham Wright is seen rolling downhill, the M & M Building is seen in the background. At the time of filming, the building was used by South Texas Junior College until 1974, when the University of Houston system took over the building and rechristened the building as the University of Houston - Downtown. The southbound lanes seen in the film during this particular scene was reconstructed in 2002 as part of the northern terminus of the METRORail line, which officially opened on January 1, 2004.

The opening credits are done twice, followed by the MGM lion opening his mouth to Auberjonois' voice saying, "I forgot the opening line". The opening credits are superimposed over Daphne Heap (Margaret Hamilton) rehearsing "The Star-Spangled Banner" with a marching band in the Astrodome. She stops the song and accuses the band of being on the wrong key. The band begins again, and the credits also start over, with the same titles repeated with the "better" version of the song. One of the opening credits reads: "Title song by Francis Scott Key" See more »
This film, televised in Denmark in the mid-seventies, made a great impact on me. The story of Brewster and his dream of flying was wildly funny and poignant. And why it has become so obscure makes me wonder. I have been hoping for an opportunity to see it again. It is truly a great film as is the instructor Robert Altman!
