Added DiffLines:

* CaliforniaDoubling: Shot on the only street in Los Angeles which could pass for Manhattan. Though the effect is blown in long shots, when you can see the skyscrapers ending after a few blocks. Also, given the address where the phone booth supposedly is, he should be basically across the street from Studio 54.

* DevelopmentHell: The film's road from inception to release took nearly ''forty years'' (including a two and a half year period between production and release). The story idea had been around for long, that Creator/AlfredHitchcock(!) was initially attached to direct the film in the late 60's.
** The two and a half year pause between production and release was more bad luck than anything else. The original release date just happened to be around the same time as the D.C. Sniper killings, and the producers wisely decided to put some distance between that.
