** While the film was still in the early scripting stage, a scene taking place at an assembly line in Detroit was envisioned, where the camera would follow two men as they talked while a car was built behind them piece by piece... and at the end, one of the characters would open a door of the now-finished car and a corpse would fall out!

** Hitch himself noted that he wanted the climax to involve the heroes interacting with the faces on Mt. Rushmore, rather than just climbing ''around'' them. Specifically, he wanted Cary Grant to hide for a moment in one of the noses...[[CrowningMomentOfFunny and then have a sneezing fit.]] Alas the government didn't want to risk defacing the monument.

** MGM wanted Cyd Charisse to play Eve Kendall (since she was under contract to the studio) and Cary Grant pushed for Creator/SophiaLoren (whom he'd reportedly fallen for while working with her on ''Houseboat''). Hitchcock also considered Creator/ElizabethTaylor before settling on Eva Marie Saint.
