When describing the area where the crop duster is strafing Cary Grant, it is said that is was filmed just east of Bakersfield, Ca. I live in this area and it is well known that the filming took place west of Bakersfield near the town of Wasco. No big deal...but the facts should be listed. I really enjoyed the production though. Too bad more are not done for some of the classic films. Really enjoyed seeing Eva Marie Saint at age 76...still a great beauty. Also nice to see Martin Landau. I did not realize the film in front of the United Nations building was done at the against the law. Very clever move by Hitchcook. He really was one of the great ones.
