The place: New York City. The time: Now, 1962. And there's no time or place like it. If you've got a dream, this is the place to make that dream come true. That's why the soaring population of hopeful dreamers has just reached eight million people. ...
In an early scene a shot is taken of the UN building showing the flags from different countries. The flag for Canada shows the 11-pointed, red maple leaf. This flag was only adopted in 1964 and made its first appearance on February 15, 1965. Since this movie takes place in 1962 the correct Canadian flag would have been the Red Ensign which had a small version of the British Union Jack in the upper left hand corner and the coat of arms for Canada in the middle right-hand side on a background of red.
PEYTON REED reads KNOW Magazine and drinks TANG, the drink of astronauts.
The TV version distributed in the UK excludes most of the split-screen phone call, presumably for time and due to the potential interpretation of the cinematography.
