** Though Word of God apparently denies it, it's entirely possible that the movie (and the TV series it was made from) were loosely based on an actual case of a doctor named Sam Sheppard who was convicted of killing his wife but claimed an intruder did it. He didn't escape, though was later released because the Supreme Court told Ohio to either let him go or give him a new trial.

His defense attorney at the retrial, F. Lee Bailey, would serve on the "Dream Team" that won O.J. Simpson's acquittal.

*** 911 recordings are admitted into evidence all the time. Assuming you meant to say "hearsay", this additionally be a dying declaration.

*** An example of that would be the The Torgersen Case in Norway where a man (Fredrik Fasting Torgersen) was convicted of rape and murder in the 1950s. The main evidence used against him back then has since been disproven and he has tried to this day to have this case resumed, but the ones in the Resumption Commission are going out of their way to prevent that, as if they know that he'll be proven innocent and pardoned if he gets his way.

** Don't know if the fact that Sykes was an ex-cop and the possibility of it being interpreted that the CPD framed Kimble to cover for one of their own might explain the lack of a GSR test.

** How Gerard is able to pinpoint the ambulance that Kimble is in is pretty simple: an ambulance that was driving pretty erratically, and also was operating outside its service area.

* In the CPD briefing scene, the Captain briefing his officers on Kimble's return to Chicago promised a bottle of twelve-year-old scotch to the man who caught him. Did Gerard show up to claim the bottle after the movie? I think he earned it.

*** I also think they're corrupt, because of two examples. In the press scene they dismiss the possibility of Kimble being innocent simple because he's convicted. It isn't rocket science that innocents can be convicted too (Fritz Moen, Per Liland, Ron Dalton, Darryl Beamish, John Button, Timonty Ewans ect.), and the police of all people should know that. Also the aforementioned climax after Sykes killed the transit cop. The witness reports were unclear and they still wanted him killed.
