A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
Late one night when the cast and crew were filming in downtown Phoenix, some locals were watching. Among them was a tiny man about 3 feet tall, who obviously had severe birth defects. Sondra Locke looked at him scrambling with difficulty trying to get a good view of them as they set up a shot. Sondra felt enormous compassion and said to Clint Eastwood, "Did you see that little man over there? Do you think we could give him a job, make him an extra or something? I bet he'd be so excited." "Don't look at him" came Clint's reply, "don't make eye contact."
Nag, nag, nag.
When the constable says that there are about ten miles from the border it is full daylight outside. When they get close to the border it is fully dark.
A disclaimer at the end reads: "Law enforcement procedures depicted in this film do not necessarily represent those of any law enforcement agency mentioned herein."
