Trivia

During the final hand of poker, Armand Anderssarian looks at his hole card when it's dealt and proceeds to try and bluff his pair of 10s to the tune of $5million hoping Leonard Nimoy only had the pair of 7s showing. The camera doesn't ever show Leonard looking at his hole card (but he must have) and must have known he had trip-7s and the winning hand all during the final agonizing scene the viewer sees.

Goofs

During the attack on the radar base the first soldier "dies" and falls across the center of the road, taking up most of both lanes and blocking the road. When the "raiders" are leaving the base the soldier has moved until his body is in only part of one lane, leaving room for the truck to get by. See more »
