Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

"The Memory Mission" is the only Mission in which actor Albert Paulsen appeared as an Impossible Missions Force agent; in all the other Missions in which he participated, his characters were mission targets or their allies. Himself a recovering alcoholic like his character of Joseph Baresh, he deliberately drank heavily the night before the scene that showed Daniel Briggs's briefing of the team was filmed, an instance where an acting role all but imposed a lapse in his sobriety.
