Fugitive Trivia

  • Harrison Ford had never seen a single episode of the
    TV series "The Fugitive"(1963),upon which the film was based.

  • A train was actually crashed for the movie, although
    Kimble jumping free was a superimposed image.

  • Ford damaged some ligaments in his leg during
    the filming of the scenes in the woods.
    He refused to take surgery until the end of filming
    so that his character would keep the limp.
    The limp can be seen in any subsequent
    scene where Richard Kimble is running.

  • The train scenes were filmed in Dillsboro, North Carolina.
    The engine used (which was not destroyed) now pulls a dinner train.
    During a ride on that train, props from the making of the film can be seen,
    including the prison bus and the shell of the engine that crashed into the bus.

  • A destination indicator on a subway train reads "Kimbal,"
    and the next shot tracks over a building which has a sign reading "Harrison"
    (two actual Chicago locations).

  • While chasing Kimble through the parade, Gerard touches a sign
    that reads "Kitty O'Shea at the Hilton Towers," an ad for
    the bar at the hotel where the climax of the film takes place.

  • Actor Richard Jordan died of a brain tumor early in the production
    and was replaced by Dutch actor Jeroen Krabbe (Dr. Charles Nichols)
