- Directed by Cast Member: This was Clint Eastwood's directorial debut.
- Playing Against Type: Yes, Clint Eastwood, The Man with No Name from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly playing an emotionally vulnerable victim; not something you will ever see again.
- Revival by Commercialization: One of the most successful examples. Roberta Flack's Cover Version of the Ewan MacColl folk song "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" got re-released after being used for Dave and Tobie's romantic interlude, and became a #1 hit that also revived Flack's career.
- What Could Have Been: Steve McQueen turned down the lead role, claiming that the female lead was stronger than the male. Whether he was right or not, it certainly didn't affect Eastwood's perception as an action hero.
