  • Trivia

    • Unusually for the series, shots of Starsky and Hutch in the Torino use rear projection (i.e. film played on a screen behind the non-moving Torino in a studio), looking noticeably more 'fake' than the show's common practice of filming the car "live" on the street as it is towed by the film crew, which looks very realistic. The interior of the barn is also quite noticeably a studio set, not looking altogether realistic and not matching the exterior shots of the barn. A number of fans noticed the difference in such qualities in this episode and feel it mars enjoyment of the story somewhat.
