*Ben Johnson* is not the cop who dies in this film. He plays the old man who is taken hostage. Two of the previous reviewers made the same mistake, or one just fed off the other's mistake without taking the time to make sure their facts were straight.

*Barry Corbin* plays Wallis, the cop who dies after being run down by Hutchinson during the chase.
