Trivia: During the big chase scene Marilyn Burns was running so slowly that Gunnar Hansen stopped to cut tree branches so he wouldn't outrun her.
Trivia: Many praise the movie for being well acted with such a low budget. Two performers that are singled out are Marilyn Burns and Paul Partain, who play Sally and Franklyn.

Old Man: Look... I got some good barbecue here.
Old Man: Look what your brother did to the door! Ain't he got no pride in his home?

Question: In the trivia it says that the name Leatherface is only said once or twice. Well, I can't recall the name being used at all. What scenes were the name used?
Question: What happens to the guy in the yellow shirt, who hits Leatherface in the face with the wrench? The main character leaves with the guy in the truck but the yellow shirt guy doesn't.
