The car that Valdez picks up before the wild ride with McCloud is a Jaguar D-Type, a popular race car and LeMans contender in the Fifties but obsolete by the time of the film's release in 1964. See more »
During the car and train chase scene where Valdez (Wallach) is driving Thad McClound (MacMurray) along a remote 2 lane road showing off the speed of Valdez's sports car, a police cruiser or crew auto, can be seen blocking between the road and a railroad crossing so that no cross traffic can pass into the train's path.

Granted, this movie is not to be taken too seriously. Who would have given heavy thought to having a female president in 1964? However, I didn't find it insulting. It was simply a comforting little comedy starring top-flight actors.
As usual, the highly diversified Fred MacMurray was excellent as the husband of the female president. Polly Bergan, always in grand form, displayed her ability to capture her character perfectly ... as directed by Curtis Bernhart for Warner Brothers.
Also presenting good performances were the great Eli Wallach and beautiful Arlene Dahl.
This was the type of comedy that reflected what was expected on the "big screen" in 1964. Filming it in Black-and-White was a good decision. Color would have taken away the simplicity that made it special.
It was 113-minutes of fun.
