Where are you from, son?
Soldier: Madison City, Missouri, sir!
Pinkley: Never heard of it.
Wladislaw uses a suppressed Beretta 950 Jetfire pistol to take out some guards outside the château and the radio operator inside. The weapon was manufactured from 1950 to 2003. The film is set in 1944.
The opening credits don't occur until 10 minutes into the film. While it is common nowadays for films to have a pre-credits sequence, it was considered innovative in 1967.
In Germany, in the German-language dubbed version, audiences saw only Jim Brown throwing hand grenades into the airshafts at the chateau. The scenes showing grenades being dumped into, and gasoline being poured into, the airshafts were cut.
