Added DiffLines:

* {{Bowdlerise}}: In the TV version, the ending dialogue of the film is changed, possibly due to [[MediaWatchdog S&P]] feeling squeamish about [[spoiler: Harry letting Jennifer get away with murder]]:

* TheCameo: '50s film star Mara Corday (an old friend of Clint Eastwood's) appears as Loretta, the waitress who overloads Harry's coffee with sugar, alerting him that something is wrong.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Played with. San Francisco scenes were filmed on location, but the second half of the film, in the fictitious town of San Paulo, was actually filmed in Santa Cruz. For the record, that wooden roller coaster that Harry shoots Mick off of at the end is the Giant Dipper at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk.

Added DiffLines:

* RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil: Callahan lets Jennifer off the hook with her revenge killings of her rapists when Mick is found with the murder weapon on his person.


Added DiffLines:

* RareGuns: Harry's backup gun is an AMP Auto Mag 180 (made by the designer himself from parts he had in his basement). AMP was bankrupt by the time the film was made, and very few Auto Mags were made during production.


Added DiffLines:

* RevolversAreJustBetter: Downplayed: Harry's not above settling for a semi-auto HandCannon should he lose his trusty Model 29. (Supposedly {{Enforced|Trope}} in RealLife: It's been claimed that the Auto-Mag jammed so often that they kept a diver on set to retrieve the pistol every time Clint got pissed and threw it off the pier.)

* DramaticIrony: [[spoiler: One of the rapists, Alby Jennings, had a MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment, and tried to kill himself. As a result, he is left with brain damage and not capable of much more than staring at a wall all day, just like Jennifer's sister.]]
