Trivia:
Goldie Hawn has admitted she's never seen this movie all the way through. Perhaps too busy working at the time to attend its premiere, she finally caught up with "$" when it played on television. But she says it exhausted her patience and she shut it off at the half-way mark.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): It appears that there was an error in Sarge's calculation of how much the Candy Man's heroin-filled baseballs were worth: if "one baseball is worth $19,000, and the Candy Man has prepared 24 of them", then $19,000 multiplied by 24 is only $456,000, not $470,000. Each baseball would have to be worth $19,583.33&1/3 for 24 balls to be worth $470,000.See more »
Quotes:
Sarge:I can't believe this. You're a heavyweight to pull off a million dollar caper, but foolish enough to get caught by a lightweight hustler like me?
Joe Collins:Million-and-a-half, Sarge. One million and a half. That's how much that Dawn and I took from yours and the two other bank boxes.
Sarge:Where is Dawn? Where is she?
Joe Collins:Now?
Sarge:Right now!
Joe Collins:Gee, it looks like... she's where the money is!

Dated, 18 January 2013
Author: rps-2 from Bracebridge Ont

This movie is sooo 1970! Take charge know-it-all Americans with long hair, James Bond style villains, lots of (for the time) hi tech gadgets, constant cigarettes, big busted bimbos in short skirts and car chases. Endless car chases! Interminable car chases! Impossible car chases! At my age I tend to regard 1971 as my era. Yet it was over 40 years ago and the movies of that time tended to reflect the James Bond culture. But any movie with lots of trains can't be all bad and much of this film is set on trains, in rail terminals and in rail freight yards. It's dated but that in itself can be interesting. Goldie Hawn with her goofy giggle is always a delight and the late Gert Frobe, although a good guy in this movie, will always be Auric Goldfinger to me.
