Three skydivers and their travelling thrill show barnstorm through a small midwestern town one Fourth of July weekend.
Experienced, but amateur skydivers, most with several thousand jumps to their credit, were brought in from California to double for the actors. During one take, an unexpected gust of wind pulled the chute and caused one of the skydivers to be slammed into the ground, breaking his collarbone and dislocating his shoulder. Even though in great pain, he stayed in character and managed to get up and finish the scene. He was retained by Director John Frankenheimer as a consultant.
Sometimes I think you have a cash register for a head.
At the end of the film, Scott Wilson waits alone at a train station. As the train pulls in, he approaches like he is going to board the train, but it is a freight train, not a passenger train.
