John Nichols was the actual chief of the Detroit Police at the time of his appearance in the movie. No doubt he hoped his appearance in the film would help his 1973 campaign for mayor. He lost to Coleman Young, however, and later went on to become sheriff of suburban Oakland County. See more »

I would leave college early everyday just to find what Detroit street they would be filming at that particular day. It was an exciting time seeing such local personalities as Dick Purtan, Woody Willis, Laura Lee, Mike Lucci of the Detroit Lions, John Nichols, and the one and only Martha Jean "The Queen" Steinberg. This was a great time for me and for the city of Detroit. I have a copy of this film and watch it whenever I can. A must see movie for all Detroiters. A favorite of Quinton Tarrentino.
