Although this movie takes place in New York City, at least two sequences were filmed in Los Angeles: the scene where Roy Scheider meets Sir Laurence Olivier was filmed in front of the red steps statue in downtown Los Angeles in the Arco Plaza; and the library scene where Dustin Hoffman meets Marthe Keller was filmed at the Doheny Library on the University of Southern California campus. Coincidentally, Hoffman filmed scenes on the same campus for The Graduate (1967).
You're weak. Your father was weak in his way, your brother in his, now you in yours. You are all so predictable.
During the film, reference is made to Uruguay, Szell's post war refuge country. But at the end of the film, at Szell's brother's house, when Babe realises that Elsa is also employed by Szell, Babe asks her what she does for Szell. She answers that she smuggles diamonds from Paris to Paraguay. (instead of Uruguay)
The ending credits scroll with Babe's jogging route as a backdrop.
