A seasoned FBI agent pursues Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before his 19th birthday, successfully forged millions of dollars' worth of checks while posing as a Pan Am pilot, a doctor, and a legal prosecutor.
The arrest scene in France was actually shot in Place Royale, Quebec City, Quebec. The church in the background is called Notre-Dame-des-Victoires and the bust in the middle of the place is of Louis XIV.
Our unknown subject is a paperhanger who started working on the East Coast. In the last few weeks this unsub has developed a new form of check fraud which I'm calling "the float". What he's doing is opening checking accounts at various banks then ...
While Frank is watching Goldfinger in the theater, Bond says, 'Tell me Joan, why does he do it?' However, in the real movie Goldfinger, Bond says, 'Tell me Jill, why does he do it?' This is the correct version as the character's name is Jill Masterson.
During the first thirty seconds of the credits we hear the FBI typewriters.
In the French language version of the film, Frank teaches his high school Spanish class instead of French.
