Did You Know?

Stock footage from Colossus: The Forbin Project (1970) is used in this film. Notice just before Steve goes into get his bionics attached - the warm up of the computers is the scene where Colossus is activated.See more »
Factual errors: Steve's remaining arm is left intact when in real life it would have to be amputated and replaced with a bionic arm because the original arm and the replacement limb could not properly function alongside each other. This is because the organic arm can't perform some of the feats of strength that a bionic arm can without receiving an injury or tearing off. In fact, Rudy is indeed shown amputating Steve's existing human arm in the BIONIC MAN comic - the amputation is done for Steve's personal safety, not just his health and well-being, which as a doctor, Rudy would be intensely concerned with.See more »
Dr. Rudy Wells:I want to show you something, Steve. This is your arm.
Steve Austin:That's it, huh?
Dr. Rudy Wells:Um-hmn. We're rather proud of it. There's a manual that goes with it that has eight hundred and forty pages. I'll give you a copy.
