When Pratt, the SWAT team member, is climbing up to the stadium lights platform, he is first shown in a long shot climbing up the fixed rung ladder attached to the platform's support pole. A close-up then shows Pratt climbing up the steel extension ladder that he used a moment before to ascend to the support pole. A wide shot then shows him ascending the fixed rung ladder on the support pole again. See more »
I was on the same plane as you. I couldn't help but notice how attractive you are. You know you have a very beautiful mouth?
Yeah, so do you, but it's big. You go away, lady, or I'll call a cop.
I am a cop.
Well, then kiss me, I'm crazy about cops.

The superstar Charlton Heston in a thrilling movie
Plot: A psycho with a big ass rifle places himself over the scoreboard at a big football game. It's Capt. Peter Holly's job to get him down from there.
I can't understand why this movie got such a poor grade here at IMDB? Who could ever say that Charlton Heston wasn't the coolest guy on the face of the earth. And take my word for it I'm not one of those hollywood suckers I like independent films and all that but this movie really shows this the mega superstar that is Charlton Heston in his golden years. But it isn't just Mr Heston who makes this movie great, the story is thrilling all the way through as you await the snipers first shot and the crowds reaction. An intelligent movie about the power of one insane man. Ps Look out for Walter Pidgeon ( the aged pick pocket ) know from such roles as Dr Morbius in the scifi classic Forbidden Planet and as Capt. Alan Thorndike in Fritz Lang's masterpiece Man Hunt. DS
