San Francisco police detectives Freebie and Bean are determined to bust local crime boss Red Meyers at any cost, even if this means destroying the whole city in the process.
The SFPD detective car the lead characters drive was a 1972 Ford Custom 500 police interceptor sedan. Over the course of filming, they totaled over a dozen of the cars. These were decommissioned San Francisco police vehicles purchased by Warner Brothers for this movie. Many of them also appeared in Magnum Force (1973).
It's mostly ketchup, I think he's still alive. Call an ambulance!
Freebie: What for? Get a large bun and a doggie bag, we'll take him with us
The boom mike is visible when Freebie and Bean pay a visit to Meyer's home.
During opening credits, as people walk in front of the camera, the older names are erased and the newer names appear.
ABC edited 16 minutes from this film for its 1978 network television premiere.
