Question: In Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, George Kennedy isn't listed with the other main characters. Was that by choice?
Answer: He is given what it known as "last billing" (which you see as "and George Kennedy). Nowadays it can also be referred to as "special billing." This is typically done for more famous actors who are playing a smaller role, or in this case a non-titular character. It was done on purpose and most likely as part of his agent's negotiation with the film studio.

When Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges are being chased by George Kennedy and his partner, Bridges is driving off the dirt road down and embankment and you can clearly see that in the passenger seat is a faceless dummy instead of Eastwood or another stunt man.
