Film Trivia

Eugène Lourié had two models of the gantry built. The second was made of balsa wood for the explosion scene. This insured complete destruction of the gantry while avoiding the danger of the set being sprayed by shrapnel.
One scene briefly shows the back of one of the Land Rovers showing the Land Rover Santana badge. These were built under license in Spain, which fits with the Spanish filming locations.
