A pair of NYC cops in the Narcotics Bureau stumble onto a drug smuggling job with a French connection.
The sound of the drill opening up the door frame of the car containing the smuggled heroin follows the same tempo as the opening cue for the track "Subway" on the film's soundtrack.
Jimmy 'Popeye' Doyle:
Merry Christmas. What's your name, little boy?
Little Boy: Eric.
Jimmy 'Popeye' Doyle: Uh-huh, Eric. What do you want for Christmas Eric? Hmmm?
During the chase scene, several shots of Popeye's feet are shown, stepping on brake, accelerator, and clutch, but shots of him through the windshield show him driving an automatic (he never shifts gears except after he runs into a wall, and then only into and out of reverse).
The 20th-Century Fox logo fades in in black and white and then dissolves to color.
