Trivia

Although Burt Reynolds and Raquel Welch had four scenes together in this movie, they never exchanged one word during filming, never even set eyes on each other. Due to a falling out whilst filming 100 Rifles (1969) Welch only agreed to star in this movie if she didn't have to appear in any scenes with Reynolds. Her double stood in the wide shots with Burt, and after he did his close ups, got in his car and drove off the lot, they called Welch, she drove on the set and Reynolds's double repeated the same shenanigans with her.

" If you count on the inefficiency of the police, this could very well work "
13 January 2010 | by thinker1691See all my reviews

If one goes to the movies a lot, it is often a bit more interesting when one has read the original work first. Ed McBain was also known as mystery writer Evan Hunter when he wrote the first of many stories surrounding his famous 87th Precinct. The series centered mostly around the reoccurring characters in his Police Station. This compilation series became the basis for the Hollywood movie called " Fuzz. " In the film, Burt Reynolds plays Det. Steve Carella, Jack Weston is Det. Meyer Meyer while Tom Skerritt plays Det. Bert Kling. With the arrival of newcomer Det. Eileen McHenry (Raquel Welch) the precinct sets out to solve a trio of baffling crimes. Formost in their sights is the mad bomber (Yul Brynner) out to extort millions from high city officials by threatening to kill them if they don't pay up. Although there is a serious attempt to convey real police drama concerning juvenile assaults, multiple arson and serial rape, the comic atmosphere and jovial levity, renders all efforts moot. Interestingly, the drama was attempted, but the end result proved more humorous than serious, rendering the movie a silly exercise with no solid resolutions. The surprising appearances of Albert Popwell as Lewis and Yul Brenner as a heavy, meant it was not a total loss. ***
