Did You Know?

Trivia:
A five hundred thousand dollar building was erected in Berlin, to be blown up during an action scene. No cameras were rolling when it blew up.See more »
Goofs:
Plot holes: When Leland finds Linda in the laundry basket, Ed and "Sunflower" clean her up, get her dressed, and give her a pill for the pain. Throughout this scene, she is fairly incoherent, and not wearing any gloves. In the train, Leland notices the bump in her glove and finds the microfilm hidden there. In the closing dialogue from the interview scene, Linda takes credit for hiding the microfilm in her glove based on another one of her pearls of wisdom from previous Hollywood war/espionage movies. That seems highly unlikely given her state in the earlier scene.See more »
Quotes:
Linda Voss:[reciting what she has noticed in the room] Pictures of sailing boats and polo ponies, fancy books and diplomas, stuffed fish on the wall, calendar set to the wrong date, bookcases that are dusty, carpets that need cleaning, and a couple of guys from Harvard who are surprised that a girl who needs a job won't be treated like a slave.
Ed Leland:Are always like this?
Linda Voss:I forgot to tell you, my other half's Irish.
Ed Leland:Lethal combination.
