Thunderbolt and Lightfoot

Revealing mistake: 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.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Thunderbolt and Lightfoot are in the car with the crazy driver. The car goes over the embankment and as it flips you can see a wheel break off. A short time later they both drive off in the same car, with the wheel attached again.

Mr Manchester

Continuity mistake: When the girl is yelling rape at the motel, she is wearing a bra and panties. After getting some money for a cab, she puts on her dress and she is bra-less.


Melody: I didn't get your name.
Lightfoot: Well, I didn't give it to ya'. My name is Lightfoot.
Melody: "Lightfoot"?
Lightfoot: That's right.
Melody: That's a dumb name. I mean, what kind of person would name a kid that, ya' know?
Lightfoot: What's your name?
Melody: Melody.
Lightfoot: "Melody"? That's not a dumb name?.. Hey, maybe we had the same father?

Red Leary: Go... fuck... a duck.

John Doherty: I don't wish to be forward but we'd like to exchange cars with you. So the faster you get out, the better it'll be for your ass.

More quotes from Thunderbolt and Lightfoot


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.
