In the original script, Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) was introduced dressed up as a priest. Director Stuart Baird and costume designer Louise Frogley didn't find this interesting enough, so they came up with the idea of the chicken outfit.

The swamp scenes were shot on Reelfoot Lake in northwest Tennessee, in the same location as was used for Raintree County (1957) and In the Heat of the Night (1967).

The plane shows Chicago's skyline on the port (left) side, indicating they are heading north. If they were heading to Memphis, Chicago should be on the starboard (right) side.

What special features are on the DVD?
The R1 US Special Edition DVD released by Warner Bros Home Entertainment in 1998, contains the following special features:Scene-specific audio commentary with director Stuart Baird (it is worth noting in relation to Baird's commentary that the sound mix is extremely poor, with the sounds of the movie being almost at the same volume as Baird's commentary, making it extremely difficult to hear what he is saying in places. Additionally, the back of the box inaccurately advertises the commentary as feature length).Trailers for The Fugitive, U.S. Marshals, Cahill U.S. Marshal and Wyatt Earp3 U.S. Marshals TV SpotsCast & Crew Biographies and FilmographiesProduction Notes (10 pages)'U.S. Marshals: Justice Under the Star'; an 11 minute featurette looking at the history and activities of the real U.S. Marshals'Anatomy of a Plane Crash' (9 featurettes looking at various aspects of the plane crash scene; 'The Crash: A Five-Act Play', 'Model Airplanes', 'Exterior Sets', 'Interior Sets', 'Landing Location', 'Escape Under Water', 'Crash Research', 'Miniature Road' and 'Crash for Crash: U.S. Marshals vs. The Fugitive')The R2 UK DVD, released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (UK) in 1999, contains the 'Anatomy of a Plane Crash' featurette and the Production Notes, but it loses everything else.
Who hired the assassin on the plane?
Mark Sheridan manages to escape custody due to a plane crash brought about by a botched assassination attempt on Sheridan by convicted murderer Vincent Ling (James Sie). It is later explained that the Chinese mob organization behind the framing of Sheridan paid Ling to kill Sheridan to prevent him from talking. They paid off an airport worker to place the gun in the toilet for Ling to use. Subsequently, Xian Chen (Michael Paul Chan) slits the airport worker's throat to keep him quiet.
Is this film available on Blu-ray?
Yes it is. The US edition released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in 2012, and is region free, contains the exact same special features as its DVD counterpart.
