R | | Crime, Drama, Mystery
A retired detective accepts a simple task, unaware that it will tear open old, forgotten, but deadly wounds.
The movie clip that Harry Ross (Paul Newman) and Jack Ames (Gene Hackman) view briefly toward the end of this movie is of a much younger Hackman, along with Dabney Coleman, from Downhill Racer (1969).
Don't you ever get tired of all the beautiful people, Harry? Doesn't it ever bother you that they do whatever they want because there're people like you and me who'll clean up after them?
When Jack plays solitaire near the end of the film, the number of cards dealt face up decreases each time the camera returns to him in three quick cuts and the cards have disappeared.
