The Slender Thread Trivia

  1. Although Sidney Poitier and Anne Bancroft were top-billed in the film, they never appeared on-screen together in a single scene. Bancroft repeated this achievement in another film, 84 Charing Cross Road (1987), in which she and Sir Anthony Hopkins co-starred but did not share any scenes.
  2. The film depicts the cumbersome process of tracing a telephone call in 1965 using state-of-the-art equipment, including number 5 cross bar and step-by-step electro/mechanical equipment, which was filmed in the central offices of the old Northwest Bell Telephone company. Modern telephone switching equipment can trace a call in less than a minute or even 30 seconds.
  3. "The Slender Thread" was Sydney Pollack's feature film directorial debut. Before that, he had worked for years in television.
  4. The device used by Seattle PD Sgt. Ward to request information on the Dyson vehicle is called a telautograph machine.
  5. The quote "Do you think that not getting caught in a lie is the same as telling the truth?" is used in both "The Slender Thread" and Pollack's film "Three Days of the Condor," and both films feature cool shots of early telephone companies tracing calls.
  6. The band playing at the discotec in the film is called The Sons of Adam.
  7. In the film's opening sequence, there is a man piloting a boat named "Silliphant," which is a reference to Screenwriter Stirling Silliphant.
