  • Trivia

    • The robbers/kidnappers apparently are oblivious to the fact that their attempted getaway is being tracked from the air by a (very noisy) police helicopter, even when the low flying copter's shadow crosses the highway directly in front of their car.

    • Goof: A highway patrolman, while pursuing kidnappers at high speed on a winding mountain road, is seen driving with one hand, firing at least 10 shots from a 6-shot revolver.

  • Quotes

    • Chief Mathews (to helicopter pilot): I don't want to lose them. And I don't want any shooting if we can avoid it.(This moments before Mathews has the helicopter hover over the road and opens fire on the car when the driver swerves to avoid the helicopter.)

    • (Boarding copter to pursue kidnappers)Chief Mathews:They are all alone now, but armed. Stay high...we won't have a chance in this fish bowl.

    • (After rescuing hostages)Chief Mathews: Your father will live.
      Kathy O'Shea: Oh thank God! The way those two men talked, I thought he was dead. Will I be able to see him?
      Chief Mathews: There's a patrol car on the way.
