Anthony Quinn hoped to cast Sidney Poitier as Lt. Hope, Harry Belafonte as Jim Harris and Sammy Davis Jr. as Henry J. Jackson. However, the community of Harlem objected to these choices, as they were from Hollywood and not the city streets, so they doubted their ability to accurately portray city life. Quinn relented.

The real crime involved in this movie is the bare bones dvd release.Though the print is great this movie really deserves a revival and a special edition....its begging to be re-discovered!!! This film would have to be one of the greatest crime flicks ever. No one dimensional characters here...all of them struggle with good and bad inside themselves and the motivations are clear. Totally unpredictable and full of incredible exciting scenes with great thoughtful dialogue. Not a typical black cop/ white cop movie this breaks rules and has scenes Ive never seen before... you cant do better than this flick.great theme song too which was re-done and updated again by the original composer Bobby Womack for Jackie Brown.check it out!You wont be dissapointed....
