An autopsy on Karen Silkwood after her death produced results that there was plutonium contamination in several of her body's organs. An civil court case followed that went on for years which resulted in the eventual out of court settlement of US $1.3 million. See more
Kerr McGee's Cimmeron plant is on the east side of Hwy 74, between Crescent to the north and Oklahoma City to the south. Opening scenes show a mileage sign for Crescent, which is really the opposite direction. This also causes incorrect footage for placement and direction of travel in later scenes (ex. placement of car in accident, tow truck pulling wrecked car past Crescent Cafe, etc.) See more
