The French Connection
Video

Trivia: The Pontiac that Gene Hackman is driving hits a white Ford sedan. The person driving it was a civilian, not involved in the filming.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film in Brooklyn, it is obviously dark outside (nighttime). As they are chasing the guy from the bar, it all of a sudden is during the daytime as it is light outside.

Suggested correction: I think that it looks dark because they are under an elevated train track.

Question: Could the police really put the Lincoln back together perfectly and that quickly?

Answer: It's a different car of the same make and model that they swapped for the one they tore apart, and in which they hid the drugs in the same place as the original.
