Most of the movie was filmed at the LA Memorial Coliseum stadium after the 1975 American football season had ended. Game footage seen in the picture was taken from a Pac-8 college football game between Stanford (4-3-1) and USC (7-1) where Stanford won 13-10. The match was played on 8th November 1975 at the Coliseum. See more »
When Sgt. Button and Lieber pull down and arrest the spectator who is sitting on the platform underneath the lights, the spectator's hands are free when they pull him down into the seats. In the next shot, as the spectator lies on his stomach in between the seats, his arms are bound behind him by twist-tie handcuffs. In the next shot, his hands are free, and Lieber is putting the twist-tie handcuffs around the spectator's wrists. See more »
You listen. I just hope you pick the right team today, Stu, because if I don't get that 28 G's in my pocket before sundown, you're going to take another trip out the window. And next time, nobody holds the ankles. You got it?

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
