At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were all still in B&W. Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later.
As Steve Dangos closes his front door (after arriving home from the board meeting), a hand and lower arm can also be seen closing the door from the outside.
Original version premiered at 151 minutes; later cut to 122 minutes.
