48 HRS Trivia
We believe the following trivia is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
Rewind Archive48 HRS writer/director Walter Hill would later lament that the producers of "Beverly Hills Cop" had simply stolen the character of Reggie Hammond for their blockbuster smash.
Rewind ArchiveDavid Patrick Kelly also played a character named "Luther" in The Warriors (1979), also directed by Walter Hill.
Thanks to Lloyd HummelIn addition to David Patrick Kelly (Luther), James Remar and Sonny Landham also appear in Walter Hill's "The Warriors" (Remar plays Ajax and Landham plays a cop). "48 HRS" marks the second film that Hill, Remar, Kelly and Landham are involved in.
Thanks to Jamie KennedySonny Landham, who plays the indian, Billy, also plays an indian named Billy in Predator. He is killed when he decides to face down a better-armed enemy with only a knife, just like in 48 HRS.
Thanks to John NotoAn aerial shot of the street going downhill is shown twice. The first time you see it you are watching the caddy, later in the movie you see the exact same shot but you are looking at the porsche.
Thanks to A.L. WaldenEddie Murphy met music producer Narada Michael Walden when the Church Street Station scene was filmed. The scene was shot right under Walden's former office on the corner of Church and Market. Walden would later write and produce Murphy's album 'So Happy' in 1989 with the hit song 'Put Your Mouth on Me'.
Rewind ArchiveThis is one of the many films where Hill uses a bar named "Torchy's." Also, in several of his films, characters utter a variation on Cody's (Streets of Fire) and The Driver's exhortation to "Go home!"
Rewind ArchiveHill also has at least one character in many of his films drive a Sky Blue Cadillac Convertible. e.g. "48 Hours", "Brewster's Millions", "Red Heat".
Rewind ArchiveJonathan Banks later reteamed with Eddie Murphy as a villainous henchman in Beverly Hills Cop.
Rewind ArchiveThe Jack Cates character would later serve as inspiration when creating the Sonny Crockett character on Miami Vice. Ironically, Olivia Brown, who plays Eddie's girlfriend near the end of the film, went on as a regular on that show.
There's often fake stuff floating round, y'know? -Like the 'ghost boy' that can allegedly be seen in "Three Men And A Baby".
But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "48 HRS".
