In the scene when Frankie and Breezy are walking down the boardwalk and pass Director Clint Eastwood, he is standing to the left of the post. As they continue walking, they pass a couple at the next post. In the next camera angle high above, Director Clint Eastwood is still leaning over the railing, but now he is to the right of the post, and the couple just passed by, are no longer even on the boardwalk.

I watched this film again today on AMC, and I find it to be an in-depth character study set in a time of a rapidly changing society, 1973.
Breezy is a young, free spirited, outgoing hippy living on the streets of Los Angeles. Frank is a middle aged, roughened, hard drinking real estate salesman with an ex-wife and ex-girlfriend. They are total opposites. A chance meeting brings the two together. The relationship that ensues is one of turbulence, kindness, and complexities as the two attempt to merge their worlds.
This is the third film directed by Clint Eastwood; the richness of the characters resembles that of Play Misty for Me. Of particular interest to fans of Clint Eastwood's work, and for people who remember the 70's.
