* SpecialGuest: Especially during its heyday, the show was able to draw a lot of high-powered talent as guest stars. Creator/VincentPrice, Creator/GeorgeSanders, Creator/WilliamShatner and Creator/LeonardNimoy (their first pairing), Barbara Feldon (before she hit it big with ''Series/GetSmart''), Yvonne Craig (before ''Series/{{Batman}}''), Cesar Romero (pre-SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker), Jack Lord, Creator/JoanCollins, Ivan Dixon, Richard Kiel, Julie London, Creator/LeslieNielsen, Joan Blondell, Janet Leigh, Anne Francis, Senta Berger, Jill Ireland (at the time David [=McCallum=]'s wife), Angela Lansbury, Kurt Russell, Eleanor Parker (who had the honor of being the series' last villainess), Dorothy Provine, Sonny and Music/{{Cher}} and Nancy Sinatra, among others. Could also be seen as StuntCasting.

* StockFootage: In one truly egregious example, the show had one favorite clip of a large UsefulNotes/WorldWarII era bomber, possibly being used after the war as a target drone, being hit by an antiaircraft missile. Whenever the series required an aircraft to be shot down--whether it be a single engined private plane, a multiengined jet aircraft, or a helicopter, whether it was shot down by a lucky rifle shot, antiaircraft artillery, or a missile--they would [[StockFootageFailure splice in this clip]] for the inevitable "airplane explodes in midair" scene.
