!!Trivia for the GameShow:

* ExecutiveMeddling: The Terminator was Fox's idea. Dick Clark wanted the game to be "all for one, one for all".
* FollowTheLeader: ''Greed'' was one of countless big-money quizzes created in the wake of ''Series/WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire''.
* TheOtherMarty: Burton Richardson announced the first episode, but was dubbed over with Mark Thompson. Notably, Mark "re-created" a ThrowItIn moment from Burton, who accidentally called a contestant "Michelle Smith" instead of Michael. (All of Mark's work was done in post.)
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Was going to get a second season, but it was axed by the network's anti-GameShow president.

!!Trivia for the Film:

* ExecutiveMeddling: This film was a victim of this, with the original 42-reel cut being massively edited by the studio into a two-hour movie that was panned by critics and audiences alike.
* MissingEpisode: Large portions of this originally 8 hour film were cut and thrown away by the producers.
* PlayingAgainstType: [=ZaSu=] Pitts, primarily known for her comedic roles, as the doomed Trina.
