Director Larry Peerce had his name removed from TV version of this movie. The director billed for this was Gene Palmer. Although Peerce's name remains in the credits of the alternate version ("A Larry Peerce-Edward S. Feldman Film"), Palmer is credited as director. Francesca Turner who wrote the teleplay scenes and who obviously had no credit in the cinema version, was added as a co-screenwriter alongside of Edward Hume who now had a shared billing. See more »
Capt Holly (Charlton Heston) twice refers to the sniper's weapon as an "automatic rifle" (a rifle that continues to fire as long as the trigger is held back). But the weapon is actually a semi-automatic (in which only one shot is fired per trigger pull). A real policeman would not have made such a mistake in basic firearm nomenclature. See more »
I was on the same plane as you. I couldn't help but notice how attractive you are. You know you have a very beautiful mouth?
Yeah, so do you, but it's big. You go away, lady, or I'll call a cop.
I am a cop.
Well, then kiss me, I'm crazy about cops.

As a fan of suspense, I definitely have rated this film as a classic edge-of-your seat cliffhanger. It contained all of the elements of a real-life thriller. The actual mounting of the suspense itself up until the end is the most rewarding effect this film possesses. As frightening and terrifying as the climax was, it nevertheless demonstrated how the actions of one individual can cause a catastrophe to unfold.
