Sondra Locke found the characters of the two brothers a little bit redundant and wanted to change one of them to a female character, and she wanted to cast Joy Behar. She also wanted to use different shooting locations and make changes in the script, but was not allowed to do any of these things due to Clint Eastwood's interference. Warner Brothers actually did not require that Eastwood or his company be involved at all; Locke thought she should have a completely different producer and a different company attached, but Eastwood wouldn't hear of it and wanted to control everything she did "to the degree that it was unreasonable" according to Locke.
