Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Detective Eddie Egan wanted his catchphrase in the film to be "Addicts in the cellar, sellers in the attic." Director Friedkin eschewed this line, preferring the more enigmatic phrase, "Do you pick your feet in Poughkeepsie?"
  • Steve McQueen was offered the chance to star in this film. Having already played a cop in Bullitt, he did not want to act in any more cop roles, and turned down the offer.
  • The chase sequence takes place beneath the West End subway line, whose proper letter marking in 1971 was a B (as of 2004, D). When equipment for the movie was chosen, the producers insisted on clean cars, and the only available clean cars were normally assigned to the N line and did not have B signs. Consequently, they operated during the movie with an N displayed in the front slot.
  • The traffic jam on the Brooklyn Bridge was shot without permission.
