Not only the story of the film is interesting, but the story of its making is also very interesting.

9 writers worked on the story of this film for 5 years and wrote at least 25 different scripts during that time, since the story of the film was based on a 120-episode TV series, the entire story was shot in 2 hours. The editing process proved to be quite difficult.

The TV show on which the film was based was never seen by the other main actors, including Harrison Ford.

In the film, a real train was hit by a real bus and after the accident, the wrecked place has become a tourist attraction.

There have been several movies based on the TV shows, but this is the only made-for-TV movie to be nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture.

The film featured a face-off between the police and Dr. Richard at a parade, and the scene was filmed at a real parade without any rehearsal, with the actors’ presence only being known to the parade attendees too late.

In order to make the police questioning scene of Dr. Richard real in the film, the director did not tell Harrison Ford what questions he would be asked, which is why the actor is not acting confused and nervous in the scene. Rather real.

The story of the film took many years but it was shot and released in just 6 months as the studio that produced it wanted to release the film in summer.
