Notable for being the first movie made for HBO. See more »
This movie was filmed in Ontario. The helicopter sent into the park with the police sniper has a Canadian Registry Number, C-GLCD. A NYPD helicopter would have an US registry starting with the letter N. See more »
NOT implausable - based on Texas Univ. tower shooting 1966
Not only is this event plausable it's based on the Texas Univ. shooting of a former Marine in 1966. August 1, 1966 - In Austin, Texas, Charles Joseph Whitman, a former US Marine, kills 16 and wounds at least 30 at the University of Texas while shooting from a tower. I'm fairly certain there was a movie made about it, too.
