In a strange piece of corporate acquisitions linking, United Artists (by then owned by MGM), released this picture, which the end titles state some interiors, presumably the "nerve centre", were shot at the Filmways, Inc studios. Later, some United Artists executives would leave UA, and later form Orion Pictures. Orion would later in 1982 buy the bulk of the Filmways, Inc film and television library, and even later, eventually MGM would buy the entire larger Orion Pictures, including the Filmways assets. Confusingly, this later corporate mergers, could be completely misunderstood, in 2019, that the UA division of MGM, shot the film at their MGM-Orion-Filmways studios, instead of their own MGM Culver City complex.

Bridge stop, and could NOT have proceeded to the South Ferry (Named for Staten Island Ferry) station as it does in movie.
