A top New York detective is sent to Los Angeles where he must solve a case involving an old Sicilian Mafia family feud.
The helicopter Lou takes out to the desert is a 1961 Bell 47J-2 Ranger, registration N73202, serial number 1850. In 1988 it was sold to a party in Australia, registered there as VH-NHR and was still registered there as of 2017.
Lionel Henry Jumper?
Jumper: No. I just do impersonations.
Lou Torrey: We'll try one more time. Lionel Henry...
Near the beginning of the film when Lou is talking to Helen in the X-ray room, behind Lou as he paces back and forth is a large X-ray view box with eight chest X-rays displayed. Six are shown reversed, the bottom left is displayed in the correct orientation, and the last (bottom right) is too underexposed to determine.
Actor Gene Woodbury is credited in opening credits only.
