Trivia
There were 2 former mayors of Mayberry in this movie: Parley Baer (Mayberry mayor Stoner) was a cop and Dick Elliott (Mayberry mayor Pike) was a powerhouse workman.

The movie shows Union Station in its heyday. Due to closures and a subway that was built, many of the scenes in "Union Station" (ie the scenes involving the ransom payments) cannot be shot again in the same way.
Share this
The chase scene on the elevated train used the Third Ave El in New York City for long shots and the Pacific Electric Railway cars in L.A. for close in shots on the train.

Goofs
When Joe Beacom peeks out of the 'Scenic Route' sign before trying to collect the ransom, a black board is moved alongside the camera and can be seen just before we see Joe inside the sign.
Share this
During the chase on the elevated train, portions of the background rear projection that can be seen through the windows of the train are reversed, flipped so that the lettering of signs is backwards. Probably this was done to match the interior angles in the train that had been filmed.

When Joyce and Calhoun are having their conversation in the café, the amount of drink in her glass changes between shots.

Quotes
Lorna Murchison: You will let my father go, won't you?

Inspector Donnelly: I'll break any man who takes his eyes off that suitcase.

Joe Beacom: [Sadistically to Lorna about the high tension cables that are all around her] All you gotta do, Cookie, is get up and take a walk. You'll fry so fast it'll curl your hair.
