* CastingGag: In 1987, Kevin Costner was the archetypal All-American Good Ol' Boy. This made him being a Russian spy who could speak flawless Russian that much more of a shocker to audiences.

* TheRemake: Of 1948 film ''The Big Clock'', starring Ray Milland, which in turn was based on the novel of the same name by poet and novelist Kenneth Fearing. ''The Big Clock'' is set in the New York publishing world rather than the Pentagon, and thus does not include the Soviet mole part of the plot, but the rest of the plot points are basically the same.
