Did You Know?

Trivia

While the premise of the film has the main characters traveling via train from Southern California to Newark, New Jersey, the film was, in fact filmed entirely in Southern California. In 1959 the Union Pacific Railroad did not offer passenger service east of Chicago. This is apparent during the final chase/fight scene between the two main characters. In the background they are seen running through a rail yard with Southern Pacific and Union Pacific engines. See more »

Goofs

Towards the end of the movie, when the policemen are boarding the train in Newark, the film has been mirrored, as can be seen by the word "PACIFIC" (as "CIFICAP") on the right side of the door. See more »

Merritt Stone?! Who's that?
1 December 2001 | by joecool-2See all my reviews

I saw this movie on MST3K also. It's a really, really bad movie. The plot is implausible and the acting is awful. The question is raised in the MST episode, "who is merritt stone?" because he seems to be the train conductor, but that's actually Gene Roth. Merritt Stone is Carol's dad in Earth Versus the Spider, and the king in "the magic sword". Gene Roth is the guy everyone *thought* was merritt stone.
