Did You Know?
- Many of the Moroccan extras had been mistakenly informed that they would only be paid if they were actually visible in the movie. This led to a lot of pushing and shoving to get close to the camera, until the crew explained to them that they would be paid no matter what.
- Ben climbs up the bell rope and out the top of the bell tower to escape the chapel. A bell in such a small tower could not possibly be heavy enough to counterbalance Ben's body weight. Therefore, Ben would pull the bell to its limit whilst climbing, and the bell would not ring repeatedly as he climbs the rope. When Ben pulls the rope taut so that he can rappel down the roof, the bell rings twice more.
- [to Louis Bernard]
- Hank McKenna: If you ever get hungry, our garden back home is full of snails. We tried everything to get rid of them. We never thought of a Frenchman!

Hitchcock's glossier and more complex remake of his classic 1934 spy thriller, with James Stewart and Doris Day as the average American couple caught in a whirlwind of intrigue and terror. [26 Nov 1999, p.A]
