- 詹姆斯·艾罗瑞 describes the character of Bud White as the biggest cop on the Los Angeles force. Noting that he wasn't even six foot, 罗素·克劳 decided to move into an apartment so small that he had to duck to get into the doorways, and could barely stand up. Crowe said this worked in making him feel like a "giant" by the time he came to the set to shoot.
- 伊莎贝拉·斯科鲁普科 was offered the lead female role but turned it down.
- At the time the film takes place, no building in Los Angeles was allowed to be taller than City Hall, so the cameras were placed at certain points so that any building taller than City Hall would not be seen.
