Jed Ward's (Gene Hackman) office scenes were filmed on location in a real law office at 473 Jackson Street on the third floor. At the time, the space was occupied by the legendary San Francisco civil rights/criminal defense lawyer J. Tony Serra. Serra is also visible during the funeral scene sitting in the back of the pews: he's the gentleman with the long gray hair. James Woods played a character based on Serra in the film True Believer (1989). See more »
