References 

Once Upon a Time in the West (1968)
The scene early in the film where one of the killers (who eventually are taken down by Tom Stall) points the gun at the little girl is very similar to the famous scene in Once Upon A Time In The West where Frank points his gun at the last remaining member of the McBain clan, also a child. And another thing that follows both those scenes is a loud noise, in Once Upon A Time In The West a train whistle blowing. And in A History of Violence, the scream of the daughter of the Stall's.
Dirty Harry (1971)
mentioned by Fogerty the first time he meets Stall
Larry King Live (1985) (TV Series)
In A History of Violence, Tom's son mentions the possibility of appearing on Larry King Live.

L.A. Confidential (1997)
