* HolyShitQuotient: Despite the film being over 40 years old, enough stuff was exploded and riddled with bulletholes that most of the effects are still pretty cool. Throw in Creator/ClintEastwood and RichardBurton trying their hardest to level the Alps without so much as breaking a sweat, and it's difficult not to be impressed.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: While most of the effects, namely explosions, are well done and are, for the most part, realistic enough for most viewers, one instance has not aged well: when [[spoiler:Christainsen]] falls off the tram car, it's quite obviously fake.

* AdaptationDisplacement: The film is so much more famous than the novel, that, despite author [=MacLean=]'s mild fame, most people are unaware there even ''was'' a book.
