The set-up cost to build "The Big Bus" vehicle was around $250,000. See more »
The bus driver tries to disarm the bomb by going into a hatch just in front of the rear tires. When he fails to disarm the bomb there, it explodes. For the rest of the movie, the bomb damage is just behind the rear tires in a place the bus driver could not have reached. See more »
It's sad, but I've seen this film over 100 times! Favourite scenes: The fight in the bus garage: "Watch it, he's got a broken milk carton"! The bar, where the pianist sings "Six Months To Live" to the terminally ill passenger! The Bi-Centennial dinner scene, where Dan denies eating 180 passengers, but admits to eating a foot: "Eat one lousy foot and they call you a cannibal"! The cliff-hanger ending: "I know it looked like I fell, but it was all part of my plan"! All in all brilliant.
