Logan's Run

Revealing mistake: In the opening scene at the nursery, a flesh colored clip is visible on the baby's hand. It is holding the white crystal to the center of his palm. (00:02:48)

Visible crew/equipment: Right after the Carousel segment, a red-clad man is running because his life-gauge says he's 30. He runs through a semi-open corridor that has dark tan bricks. A moment after he passes through the area, and turns back to see Logan aiming at him you can see a spark emitting device has been colored the same as the bricks, but noticeable. It is a special effect to complete the scene.

Movie Nut

Jessica: A friend of mine went on carousel. Now he's gone.
Logan: Yes, well, I'm sure he was renewed.

Trivia: In the first scene in the Senate Chamber, as Logan and Jessica enter, listen for Peter Ustinov clowning around on the sound track. The cats say "hello" very distinctly, twice. A meow can sound like hello, but not that much like it.

Question: Why were the enforcers called sandmen?

Answer: In popular American lore, the Sandman is responsible for putting sand over your eyes to make you go to sleep. In this context the "sleep" is a euphemism for death, and the enforcers are responsible for making sure that everyone dies on time.
