Shot in Toronto's TTC subway system, mainly using the system's only abandoned station platform and two of a class of older cars being retired by the TTC. The two cars were shipped by road to the scrapyard the day after filming ended, still disguised as New York cars. See more »
Toronto trains show a two-digit "run number" in lighted numerals at the base of the driving cab window. (It identifies the train, like "Pelham 123" in the movie.) The run number at the front of the detached car is usually 31, but 07 when it is an H-6. At the rear, the run number is usually 22, but 27 just after the train has been divided. See more »
One of my all time favorite movies was this movie back in the theatrical version in 1974. This TV version was awful. It was a perfect example of a movie that did not need to be remade. I could not wait for it to end as I was bored silly. There was absolutely no chemistry between the characters. I hope this movie gets "shelved" forever.
