    • TRIVIA (2)

      • After Malloy dons his bullet-proof vest, he tells another officer things to do. Then the other officer says "Right, Reed".

      • Malloy requests "bullet proof" vests while dealing with the man with the gun. This showed that officers of the day did not routinely wear the then bulky ill-fitting vests, which were not bullet proof, but only bullet resistant. Today's vests are custom fitted and worn by almost all street officers, but are still only resistant.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Tex: I ain't got no luck at all. Just got off the bus two hours ago from Texas. Figured I'd help myself to some easy bread. Never even got to see the town.

      • Reed: Two hours in town. The guy from Texas sure didn't get to see much of L.A.

        Malloy: Yeah, maybe they ought to have residence requirements for hold-up men.
