During the filming of the scene where Patty is walking over the railroad tracks on the bridge, Patty Dunning states in an interview that she did, in fact, drop down in between the trestles, and that she was really glad she weighed what she did at the time so that she didn't go all the way through, because the bridge was about 60 feet high.

During the chase scene towards the railway trestle the road appears one minute to have new yellow striping and the next cut having no striping. As the yellow striping don't have the old white ones underneath, the road must have been unmarked and painted during filming. The USA was converting their road markings from white to yellow during this period. See more »

That's right, Jenny, in a way it *is* free, what I mean is it doesn't cost anything but your life.
That sounds pretty expensive.

Well it might seem that way, until you realize that you're living with God who created you. The God who cares for you more than any other person could. That you're letting Him take over. There's no way you could lose.

I saw this film so long ago I can't recall how old I was--had to have been less than 8 years old but older than 4. After watching it with my parents, it haunted me for the longest time, particularly when connected with the song "Wish We'd All Been Ready". Made in 1972 and having a low-budget feel to it, the acting was terrible and effects were poor, but the message was strong and persuading. The intent was obviously to scare the viewer into salvation. However, depending on your mindset while watching A Thief in the Night, you may or may not take any of it seriously. That is why as a child, lacking the experience, understanding, and ability to compartmentalize it was the most disturbing...for me anyway.
