The Colt Python .357 magnum revolver used by Detective Hutch in every episode of "S&H" (except the pilot) is the same pistol carried by David Soul in his role as Officer John Davis in "Magnum Force"
On numerous occasions, Paul Michael Glaser has talked about how much he hated the car, as well as playing Starsky, and that he had campaigned to be released from his contract. He said, at the time, that he would have refused to continue with the series, had it not been canceled. Like many TV actors at the time, wanted to become a film director, however his attempts at directing "Starsky & Hutch" were unfruitful due to too many artsy shots that did not fit in tune with the series, the way it had originally been conceived.
The producer actually wanted to use a green and white Camaro instead of the red and white Ford Torino, but General Motors were unable to help them.
The red Ford Gran Torino with the white stripe also appeared in the first episode of "The Dukes of Hazzard" (1979).
Ken Hutchinson was a health food "nut", often seen concocting himself smoothies of almond milk, wheat germ and raw honey or eating muesli for breakfast. In contrast, Dave Starsky was a junk food "addict", favoring pizza, burgers and hot dogs galore. The actors real life food preferences were quite the opposite.
There is a missing unaired episode called "Honeytrap," it guest starred Donna Mills. She played wife Cathy who lures single men and her jealous husband shoots them dead.
