Follow the Leader: Every movie in the past twenty years that pairs an action star with a bunch of annoyingly cute kids has this movie to thank for its existence.
Reality Subtext: "Father was a cop, brother was a cop, mother was a cop's wife." Arnold does come from a family of cops; at least his father and brother were cops, just like Kimble and his family. Both Arnold and Kimble are Austrian, too.
Retroactive Recognition: Angela Bassett played the flight attendant that served O'Hara and Kimble breakfast just before the "pencil-snapping" scene.
A 5-year-old Odette Yustman plays one of the kids in Kimble's class, namely the one speaking Spanish.
