- This film was selected to the National Film Registry, Library of Congress, in 1994.
- Throughout the years, future director Sam Peckinpah (who appears briefly in the film) claimed that he had done work on the script ranging from modifications to major overhauls. Those who worked on the film claimed that if Peckinpah had made any changes to the script, it was limited to a few lines of dialogue. Peckinpah's claims became so inflated that the real writer, Daniel Mainwaring, threatened to file an official complaint with the WGA. Peckinpah backed down. When Peckinpah died in 1984, many of the obituaries still carried the claim that he had rewritten the script for this film.
