Foul Play

Other mistake: After Carlson and Gloria have escaped their captors, they have to get to the Opera House ASAP to try to thwart the assassination of the pope and have to use 3 vehicles. I have frequently visited SF from the UK, and am familiar with the layout of the city. The route they take seems bizarre. They keep coming back on themselves, and at one point make a left onto California St behind a cable car. All they then needed to do was continue to the junction with Van Ness, take a left down to the Opera House near the intersection with Market St - yet still go off-route. I appreciate sat-nav hadn't yet been developed, so perhaps the film-makers were trying to evoke memories of Steve McQueen's car chase in Bullet.

Audio problem: The scene in Dudley Moore's apartment was longer than the song, "Stayin' Alive" that is playing on his stereo so the song is substantially longer by looping and replaying portions of the song. (00:30:20 - 00:36:00)
