Magnum Force

Factual error: The woman walking past waiting fares, saying "excuse me, this is important." She gets into the right rear door of a 1963 Chevrolet, with flat door sill. In the interior of the car there is "Kick Up" in the doorsill, and a Ford door release handle, flush with the side trim. The 63 Chevy had different handles.

Factual error: When the pimp murders the hooker in the taxi, he is said to have forced drain cleaner down her throat. However, he uses an aerosol can. You can even hear the metal ball shaking inside of it several times. In the 1970s, drain cleaner did come in metal cans, but what he is using is a spray can of some kind, which drain cleaner did not come in. It is always in liquid form to pour down a drain, spray would not release enough.

Visible crew/equipment: After Callahan removes the bomb from his mailbox, he looks up at a man on the nearby stairs. As a car drives by on the street, the lights from it cast the shadow of the boom operator onto the wall.

Question: I'm not sure if he already suspected them at the time, but why exactly did Harry want to take Davis and Sweet to arrest the gangster?

JohnShel91

Answer: Because Davis and Sweet demonstrated keen interest, skill and knowledge of firearms (particularly of Harry's .44 Magnum) when they first met. They were flattering Harry, probably in anticipation of inviting him to join their death squad. Harry was impressed and asked for them specifically, even though they were rookies, but he didn't suspect them of being the vigilante killers at that point.
