Film Trivia Snippets - During an interview for Canadian TV, the film's producer revealed that The Taking of Pelham One Two Three did terrific box-office in New York, Toronto, London and Paris; all cities with substantial subway facilites.
Ever since the release of the film, no #6 train has never been scheduled to leave Pelham Bay Park Station at either 13:23 or 01:23 by the New York City Transit Authority.
