Continuity mistake: After the British soldier is shot, David Balfour finds Alan Breck hiding in the brush. Breck has a visible beard stubble that disappears a few shots later.

Trivia: Kidnapped was Disney's only feature film to be released on MCA's ill-fated DiscoVision format. But the movie did launch a famous actor's career: His role as Alan Breck Stewart's bagpipe-playing kinsman, Robin MacGregor, was Peter O'Toole's film debut.
