Architect/vigilante Paul Kersey arrives back in New York City and is forcibly recruited by a crooked police chief to fight street crime caused by a large gang terrorizing the neighborhoods.
According to Alex Winter, Charles Bronson was a health nut and germophobe.
Is that like a .44 magnum?
The car stereo that one of the gang members holds disappears from his hand after Kersey shoots him.
A shot during the end credits shows police cars and an ambulance and fire truck screaming down a street towards the epicenter of the riots.
The syndicated network TV version has at least one alternate take: During the gang rape of Maria in the gang's headquarters, the WPIX TV version shows her screaming with her arms crossed in front of her chest, while the theatrical version shows her screaming with a clear shot of her bare breasts. The TV footage is extremely grainy and badly spliced into the film.
