Trivia

This was Geraldine James' very first role in front of a camera. Although she was an accomplished stage actress, she had never acted in a film or television programme before and was worried that her acting and delivery might be too theatrical. The very first scene to be shot was the one when her character is in bed with Carter: a real baptism of fire! See more »

Goofs

In the shoot-out scenes, when Zak is running towards the camera and is about to be shot, the sharp outline of the mechanism to fake the gunshot wound can be seen clearly underneath his shirt. See more »

Quotes

Ernie Millan: I'm a respectable motor trader now. They've asked me to join the round table.
Det. Sgt. George Carter: You'd look stupid in armour.
