Trivia In a long shot of traffic there is a truck emblazoned with the Bohack logo. Bohack was a supermarket in the 70s and it featured prominently in many other Donald Westlake novels involving John Dortmunder whose girlfriend, May, worked there. See more »
Goofs At the end of the film, when they crash the car into the Police storage yard, the car they crash into the lot is not the same car they were driving through Central Park. The car in Central Park is a 1972 Plymouth Fury, while the one that crashes into the police storage yard is clearly a 1968 Plymouth Fury. See more »
