Trivia Michael Cimino was asked to direct this film but didn't think it was a good film for him. As a favor to the producers, who were on a deadline, he went to New York and did all the preproduction. When they were set to begin shooting, the producers again tried to get Cimino to direct but he told them he thought, considering the budget, they needed someone who could work faster than he was used to working and so they hired Rosenberg.

Goofs When Walter (Bunky) (Jack Kehoe) falls into the elevator shaft, Charlie goes down to see if the guy is still alive or not. Charlie finds out it's a cop & also that he has a wire tape on him. When Charlie checks Bunky's pulse in Bunky's neck, the actor leans into Charlie's hand. He is supposed to be dead, and not moving. See more »
