Disgruntled Korean War veteran Walt Kowalski sets out to reform his neighbor, a Hmong teenager who tried to steal Kowalski's prized possession: a 1972 Gran Torino.
In the original screenplay, Walt visits the bar, has a drink of expensive whiskey, and then calls Sue from the phonebooth outside the bar.
God, I am sorry for Dorothy, Walt. She was a real peach.
Walt Kowalski: Thanks for coming, Al.
At the opening funeral the casket is covered with a white cloth. At both funerals the priests wear white vestments. At Roman Catholic funerals vestments and pall covers are usually purple, not white.
The credits scroll over a highway overlooking the lake shore, with the Warner Logo appearing in black and white.
